SEA ISLE CITY – In June, Sea Isle set its lowest floor elevation of unfinished space at 7.0 North American Vertical Datum of 1988. At its Tuesday, Oct. 24, meeting, the city council amended its earlier ordinance, setting the new requirement at “2 feet above top of curb.”

Mayor Leonard Desiderio called the amendments a “commonsense change that will provide for increased protection from flood waters but will not be impractical in some of the lower-lying areas of the city.”

At the same meeting, the council adopted a change to a series of building height requirements across all city zoning districts. The various height limitations for each zoning district can be found in the ordinance.
