Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update April 12, 2018 #RealEstate

IN CASE YOU MISSED Avalon Tax Assessor Jeffrey Hesley’s recent presentation to the Avalon Home & Land Owner’s Association regarding Avalon’s recent reassessment, you can view his slide presentation here: The presentation describes the difference between a reassessment and a revaluation, among other things.  Avalon’s ratable base grew from $7.49 billion to $8.9 billion as a result of the reassessment.  362 property owners (6.39%) asked for an informal review of their assessment after new values were established.

You never know what you’ll see on a beach walk!  This fellow was spotted on Avalon’s 57th Street beach last week, and other seal sightings have been reported.  Experts caution that seals or other animals should not be harassed or approached too closely.  (Photo submitted.)

MORE BRIDGE WORK is underway on the two bridges that link Avalon & Stone Harbor with their island neighbors to the north and south.  The Great Channel Bridge, linking Stone Harbor to North Wildwood via Ocean Drive, is undergoing maintenance and repair work that began this week and is scheduled to continue through April and May.  One alternating lane of traffic will flow on the bridge while the work is underway.  Meanwhile, the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge, which links Avalon to Sea Isle City via Ocean Drive, was closed to traffic last week so that the ongoing removal and replacement of railings can continue.  It is expected to reopen to traffic at the end of the month.

SUMMER FLOUNDER regulations have been set for the 2018 season, which will run from May 25th to September 22nd.  Anglers may keep three fish per day at a minimum size of 18 inches, unless fishing in Delaware Bay, where the minimum size is 17 inches, or Island Beach State Park, where the minimum size is 16 inches.

FREE TREE SEEDLINGS are available to Avalon property owners Saturday morning, April 14th, from 9:30am to noon at Community Hall.  Statewide 90,000 seedlings are available at 100 distribution locations via the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign.  The program is coordinated by the NJ Forest Service.

LESS THAN SEVEN WEEKS TO MEMORIAL DAY!  The unofficial start of summer is just around the corner!  It’s time to make your plans—whether you want to visit the Island for a week, or make it permanent, please call me!  I’ll listen to your needs and help you find the perfect place!
