Strathmere Improvement Association - Commonwealth Plans, Motel News and What a Forecast!

Strathmere Improvement Association

April 10, 2018
Have you seen the weekend forecast? Looks as if we're going from a March-full of snow and storms to weekend temps in the high 60s. The daffodils are in bloom, trees are budding and the seasonal birds are starting to make their appearance. Hope you'll enjoy some Strathmere time, too. Meanwhile, here are two items of interest...

Proposals for Commonwealth Avenue:The County has developed several plans to restripe Commonwealth Avenue to create a safer, more user friendly corridor. Most versions would support the creation of a pedestrian lane and parking on only one side of the street.
plans here

The public is invited to an information session at the Sea Isle City Community Lodge in the Welcome Center on JFK Boulevard from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 20.

Strathmere Motel News!In case you haven't heard,
the owners of the Strathmere Motel have decided not to reopen this summer. As a result, they have petitioned the UT Zoning Board to change their status from Resort Commercial to a non-conforming, multi-family dwelling while they explore future development. You are invited to attend the Zoning Board meeting this Thursday, April 12 at 7 pm in Township Hall. If you would like to ask questions, homeowners within 200' are first invited to speak and then the general public may join in.
