PROPOSED DUNE RESTAURANT: The essence of the proposal before the Avalon Planning Board recently was a request by Avalon developer and businessman Tim Kerr to demolish the existing pizza parlor, arcade and ice cream shop now on the site, replacing it with a new, two-story restaurant and catering-event venue. Public concern ranged broadly, but a certain focus emerged on issues of public safety, sanitation, noise, the project's congruence with the newly completed Surf Side Park and parking.

NEHST WINTER SEMESTER: On January 21, the Wetlands Institute will continue their Nature Education for Homeschool Students and Teachers (NEHST) winter semester with "Adapting to Winter". Join in as they explore the different ways animals and plants have for dealing with winter's icy chill.

UPDATED HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN: The Cape May County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) held a virtual public meeting recently to introduce its updates to the county's Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The plan was last updated in 2016. Eligibility for FEMA pre-disaster funding requires an update every five years. The plan is in two large volumes, with several appendices added to the already-extensive detail in the document. While this is a county-level plan, it also serves as a repository of municipal-level planning, with a chapter in volume two for the county's 16 municipalities.

DO THE SHORE THIS WINTER: The sunshine disappears very early, and most holiday festivities have ended, which can only mean that winter is definitely closing in. Instead of just hiding out under the covers and waiting for the beach weather to return, try taking advantage of the nicer days and breaks in the weather to get outside this winter season to do the shore.
