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

OFFSHORE WIND POWER is being pursued again by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, which selected a firm to assist in the formation of an Offshore Wind Strategic Plan, after NJ Governor Murphy’s Executive Order setting a goal of producing 3,500 megawatts via offshore wind by 2030.  BPU will hold a public hearing near Trenton on July 19 regarding plans for producing the first 1,100 megawatts.

NOR’EASTER NICK, of SNJ Today, will host the 1st Annual Hurricane & Severe Weather Seminar Wednesday, July 25th at 6:30pm, at the Stone Harbor Municipal Building.  Nor’Easter Nick provides weeknight television weather forecasts locally on channel 4’s South Jersey News broadcasts at 7pm and 11pm, and will be joined at the seminar by former CBS3 reporter Tom Lamaine, Joe Martucci of the AC Press, and several other weather experts.  The seminar is free, but registration is recommended:

TURTLE SURVEY:  The Wetlands Institute would like a few minutes of your help!  This brief survey about turtles crossing Stone Harbor Boulevard will take only a couple of moments, but the results will be used to reduce turtle fatalities on local roadways:  

SUMMER FLOUNDER are moving to deeper areas as the back bays continue to warm up.  Deeper holes which hold cooler water, plus the inlet areas are seeing large flounder caught.  Offshore tuna catches have been good, with more mahi mahi and white marlin moving into the area.  Want to try your luck?  Seek some advice from a local tackle shop, such as Avalon Hodge Podge or Moran’s Dockside in Avalon, or Smuggler’s Cove in Stone Harbor.  Any of the shops can tell you what’s hot (and what’s not), and they carry the best bait for the catch you’re seeking.

THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM, or NFIP, must be renewed by Congress by July 31st in order to continue issuing policies.  At issue is the fact that the NFIP operates in the red, even after $16 billion of debt was forgiven by Congress last year.  In the past,  Congress has authorized temporary extension of the program while debating long term solutions.  It’s important to note that in its fifty-year history the program has not lapsed, and even if it did, FEMA would still pay valid flood insurance claims.

TWIN CAPES PHOTOS:  The M/V Twin Capes, a Cape May-Lewes Ferry vessel intentionally sunk just a few weeks ago in order to form an artificial reef, can be seen in these photos:  Although the ferry can’t be seen in its entirety due to water conditions, it apparently sunk on its port side instead of its bottom.  The new reef is expected to provide a habitat for both bait fish and game fish for decades to come.
