MAYOR'S MESSAGE
From Mayor Leonard Desiderio...

On June 29, the City’s Administration hosted a Town Hall Meeting to discuss the future of the public school property at 4501 Park Road. I am happy to report that the meeting was attended by more than 200 residents and property owners, who were eager to explore our options and share their thoughts. In addition to people stepping-up to the microphone to express their feelings, we also created a questionnaire that will further assist your elected officials as we pin-down exactly what everyone wants to happen at the Park Road facility.

CITY COUNCIL'S MESSAGE
From The Members of City Council...

During the “Administration Reports” portion of the June 25 City Council meeting, Business Administrator George Savastano reminded Council and the audience that the Administration had scheduled a Town Hall Meeting on June 29 to discuss the future of the public school property at 4501 Park Road. Afterwards, Councilman Gibson announced that City Council’s Reorganization Meeting was scheduled at 12 noon on July 1 at Excursion Park. Next, Councilman Edwardi asked for an update on the Townsends Inlet Bride Repair Project, at which time Mr. Savastano stated that the bridge was still on-track to be open to traffic in the end of July.

The Townsends Inlet Bridge (Connecting Sea Isle City and Avalon) is closed to all vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic until later this summer. Please plan an alternate route. 



QUESTIONNAIRE
Share Your Thoughts About The Future of the Public School Property on Park Road

During a Town Hall Meeting hosted by the City’s Administration on June 29, a questionnaire was offered that allowed audience members to share their thoughts and opinions regarding the future of the public school at 4501 Park Road – and specifically, what type of recreation facility that property should become. That questionnaire is now available online so those who were not able to attend the June 29 meeting can also express their views.

A link to the questionnaire can be found on the “News” tab located on the homepage of Sea Isle City’s municipal website: www.seaislecitynj.us . All completed questionnaires must be returned to the City by July 19, 2019.
