BEACH SURVEY: The spring 2020 municipal oceanfront beach survey was completed on April 15th and 16th at the eight established sites in Stone Harbor.

Semi-annual shoreline and sand volume changes were calculated between survey #55 (conducted in October 2019) and survey #56 to determine changes over the 2019 to 2020 winter season and review changes to the Corps project on the Borough beaches.

Cape May County Safety

REOPENING SAFELY TOGETHER: The Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Cape May County Chamber Board of Directors, and the Mayors of all sixteen Cape May County municipalities released this joint statement as follows: "We join together to urgently request that all residents of and visitors to Cape May County wear face coverings in all public places, other than certain very limited exceptions. Thanks to the good sense, hard work, and sacrifices of members of our community, COVID-19 cases in Cape May County have remained below a critical threshold, however, we must take bold steps to ensure that cases continue to trend downward or, at minimum, remain steady even with the influx of seasonal residents and visitors expected during July and August. For the health of all and as an investment in the economic health of our community, we deeply appreciate and now depend upon the cooperation of business owners, staff members, and the public in this needed next step."
