• MARGATE – An engineer and attorney hired to represent the city regarding the pending dunes project have questioned the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers.

    Margate Administrator Richard Deaney provided a written update to the Board of Commissioners Sept. 18 about the progress being made by outside counsel and an environmental engineer hired to represent the city against the dunes plan. Deaney said the city has received a revised edition of the engineering plans for the dunes project, which is slated to begin in November, and is being reviewed by the city’s engineer.

  • VENTNOR – An engineering consultant last week recommended ways the city can become more sustainable and resilient to storms in the wake of hurricane Sandy.

    Stewart Weiser of Remington, Vernick and Walberg presented his Strategic Recovery Planning Report to the Board of Commissioners at its Sept. 17 meeting. The report was funded with a $30,000 grant that was made available to communities in the nine counties most affected by the storm. To qualify, municipalities had to show they lost at least $1 million in ratables as a result of the storm.

  • LONGPORT – The Borough Commission Sept. 17 passed a resolution that approved all the necessary documentation to start the long-awaited dunes project.

    Mayor Nicholas Russo signed an authorization for a state aid agreement with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to construct the Brigantine to Great Egg Harbor Inlet Storm Damage Reduction Project

  • VENTNOR – The City Commission, Planning Board and Planning and Zoning Department are considering changes to the zoning and building codes to address a number of issues.

    On Aug. 21, the commission asked the Planning Board to review zoning for the R-7 District, which is zoned single family. The commission is asking planners to consider allowing duplexes as a conforming use in the zone.

    According to Zoning Officer Jimmy Agnesino, the area was once zoned for multifamily dwellings, but in the 1990s the city rezoned it for single family only.
