STONE HARBOR – Officials are reviewing the borough's infrastructure and cleanup is under way. But residents are not yet allowed back in Stone Harbor.

Gov. Chris Christie today called for coastal towns to work together, and through the county’s emergency management office, to a unified approach to re-entry into coastal communities in Cape May County.

People will be able to return to the barrier islands when local and county emergency management offices deem it safe, according to an announcement from Stone Harbor.

Christie spoke with Mayor Suzanne Walters about the issues affecting Stone Harbor as a result of Hurricane Sandy. A press release did not specify those issues.

Walters and elected officials in other coastal communities met with Christie Oct. 31 at the Avalon Elementary School .

“I want to personally thank the Governor for his tireless efforts handling the coastal issues associated with Hurricane Sandy,” Walters said in a press release. “We agree that coastal communities need to make sure that roads and properties are safe before re-entry will be permitted.”

The borough's emergency management officials, police, fire and public works have been reviewing Stone Harbor's infrastructure.

Updates will be made available at  ; on Stone Harbor’s 1670AM radio station; on ShoreTV Channel 2 for Comcast television customers; via Global Connect, Stone Harbor’s reverse 9-1-1 system; and the Stone Harbor Volunteer Fire Co. No. 1’s Facebook page.
