Barbara Roff CSA Avalon Real Estate

BEACH FILL UPDATE: the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will oversee a $2.3 million beach fill project in Avalon which will encompass the 10th through 17th Street beaches, tapering off at 9th and 18th Streets.  The Army Corp project will begin this month and is expected to take approximately 60-70 days.

Avalon intends to supplement the Army Corps project with another fill from 15th to 18th Streets.  This project will begin after completion of the first and will be completed some time in June.  The two cannot be completed simultaneously due to high traffic volume of trucks carrying sand, etc.

A HARP SEAL beached itself on Avalon's beach last week.  The seal was unharmed, but was transported to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine for an examination.  It will likely be released into the ocean after receiving routine care.  Harp seals are common to the New Jersey coastline.

STONE HARBOR'S TAX RATE will rise by one cent to $.539 per $100 of assessed value.  The 2009 budget has increased by 3.5% over 2008.

DUNE DRIVE resurfacing from 12th to 18th Streets will start next Wednesday, March 18th.  The work, including new gutters, curbs, and street surface, should be complete by May 1.  Look for detours around the work area.

THE SEA ISLE BOULEVARD BRIDGE will undergo a renovation project designed to extend the 46 year old bridge's lifespan by 10 to 15 years.  Look for alternating lane closures on weekdays as work progresses from now through August.  Traffic will flow in both directions on weekends.  Temporary traffic lights have been installed to control traffic flow over the bridge.

VIEWING PLATFORMS have been erected at Stone Harbor Point to facilitate bird watching and general sight seeing.  The platforms were constructed using grant money from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.

If you've never been to the Point, it's a delightful place to catch a sunrise, a sunset, a late afternoon sea breeze, a view of Hereford Inlet, and a nighttime view of Hereford Inlet Lighthouse and the amusements on the Wildwood Boardwalk.

AFFORDABILITY: it's a word that was used very little when prices were climbing higher at an alarming clip in the Avalon/Stone Harbor real estate market.  But now, prices are better than they've been in a long time.  Even more importantly, mortgage rates are incredibly good, hovering near 40-year lows.  Great prices combined with great interest rates have brought "affordability" back into the real estate lexicon.
