PETERSBURG – Local sports and recreation programs must begin coordinating better with the township, Committeeman Hobie Young said last week.

He recommended requiring all local sports programs send a representative to every Sports and Recreation Advisory Board meeting, and having equipment purchased by the programs be approved by the advisory board so it meets Upper Township’s specifications.

“There are too many hands in the soup out there,” Young said at the Monday, Sept. 8 meeting of Upper Township Committee. Young oversees sports and recreation programs as part of his duties on Township Committee.

But two committeemen questioned whether the moves are just aimed at discouraging people from going there.

Strathmere, with its unofficial motto “Shhh,” is not like most shore towns. It’s too small for the massive turnover and influx of renters that neighboring Ocean City and Sea Isle City experience each summer.
