The members of City Council and Mayor Desiderio have received numerous emails and phone calls from property owners regarding the proposed Promenade Extension. Additionally, the City’s Administration recently contacted the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to get their input about that project. During the September 13 City Council meeting, the Mayor announced that there is now a joint understanding not to proceed with the Promenade Extension.
Also during the September 13 Council meeting, Cape May County Engineer Dale Foster and Engineer Paul Nolan, from Maser Consulting, gave a Power Point Presentation about the Sea Isle Boulevard causeway construction project. Phase 2 of that project is expected to begin in the days ahead.
Ordinance 1595 was introduced and had first reading on September 13. This ordinance relates to the adoption of Sea Isle’s Watershed Management Plan, which was developed in 2016 and supports the City’s continuing efforts to reduce flood insurance costs by participating in FEMA’s CRS Program.
During the “Pending Business” portion of the September 13 meeting, Councilwoman Tighe asked the City to meet with Uber once again to see if any existing issues with Uber drivers operating in Sea Isle City can be resolved.
During “New Business” on September 13, there was a discussion about the challenges associated with people launching kayaks at the Municipal Marina boat ramp. Councilman Gibson asked the Administration to determine if there are safer launch sites for kayakers. Councilman Gibson also asked the Administration to explore the idea of building an above-ground parking garage in town, possibly near the Municipal Marina.
City Council’s next meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 27, in City Hall – we hope to see you there!
