SEA ISLE CITY – Sea Isle City Mayor Leonard Desiderio, in his report to City Council Sept. 12, spoke of a number of public construction projects that are getting underway in advance of the 2024 season.

Desiderio said the city would be starting construction on the long-awaited dog park this fall in the hopes of providing an attractive option for man’s best friend when the summer closes the beaches and Promenade to dogs next season.

The mayor also highlighted the fact that the city would go out to bid next month for the construction of handicapped access ramps to the Promenade at 51st and 53rd streets.

Desiderio added that the contract award for the paving of 46th Place was on the council’s agenda that day. He said it was one of “a number of road and utility construction projects we’ll be advancing this fall through the spring.” These include repaving of Central Avenue from 56th to 69th streets, utility work on 40th Street and the repaving of another part of Central Avenue from John F. Kennedy Boulevard to 36th Street.

Among the largest projects for the off-season is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ scheduled replenishment project, which Desiderio said should see work done between this fall and next spring.

Finally, the mayor said the city expects approval “any day now” from the state in order to go out to bid with the planned new Community Center.
