SEA ISLE BOULEVARD PROJECT:
The following is the current update from the county engineer as of January 15, 2019:
Notice of “REVISED” Tentative Paving Schedule
Sea Isle Boulevard from the Garden State Parkway to Ludlam’s Thoroughfare Bridge
Please note that the originally planned paving date for Sea Isle Boulevard has been postponed from Tuesday, January 15th until Friday morning, January 18th around 7:00am subject to acceptable weather conditions. Once the paving operation begins, it will proceed continuously on Friday, Friday night, and into Saturday morning.
Paving for tomorrow has been postponed due to delays associated with the winter storm that occurred on Sunday. The remnants of the snow and ice coupled with cold overnight temperatures over the next 4 nights do not allow for acceptable paving conditions. The next possible acceptable paving window is on Friday, January 18th when the contractor will attempt to complete the base paving. Since the paving schedule is totally weather dependent, a final determination as to whether paving will occur will be made on Thursday, January 17th at noon at which time a final notice will be distributed.
CITY COUNCIL'S NEXT MEETING:
The next regular City Council meeting will take place on Tuesday, January 22, at 10:00 a.m. in Council Chambers on the third floor of City Hall.

Master Plan Re-Examination Update:
The Master Plan re-examination report was adopted by the City’s Planning Board on August 14, 2017. In previous reviews by City Council of the re-examination report, council members were in agreement to move forward and prioritize several of the recommendations contained within the report, including…
• Evaluate satellite parking lots
• Increase requirements for residential and mixed-use parking
Parks, Recreation & Open Space:
• Recommend a professional facility study be performed on the former Public School Building (this should have a high funding priority)
• Demolish the Old Fire House on West Jersey Avenue and use that space to augment recreation or parking
• Perform a study to determine the feasibility and funding for a kayak and paddleboard launch and storage area at Dealy Field – and also adding a boardwalk along the bay for educational nature trails
Storm Water Management:
• Prepare a comprehensive Flood Control Plan in partnership with the County to address flooding issues
• Work with Federal, State and County government to address bay flooding solutions
• Formalize a designated person, who will work directly with the business community and Chamber of Commerce to achieve common goals
