CAPE MAY – Mayor Zack Mullock said the state Boardwalk Preservation Fund grant of $6.7 million was “one of the biggest grants the city has ever received.” The money will go to repairs and improvements of the city’s Promenade. The mayor’s statement came during the Tuesday, March 5, meeting of the City Council.

The award of the funds was part of a series of 18 such awards totaling $100 million made by the state in February. “We recognize that boardwalks are economic drivers for many shore towns,” said Department of Community Affairs Acting Commissioner Jacquelyn Suarez. The awards were made possible through the use of federal pandemic fiscal recovery funds.

“We all know how important our Promenade is, not just for recreation and a lovely walk, but also as part of our sea wall that protects the city,” said Mullock.
