The New Jersey Coastal Coalition
The City of Sea Isle City is an active member of the New Jersey Coastal Coalition, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of floodplain communities and other organizations that are dedicated to flood mitigation on the Jersey Coast.
Organized soon after Super Storm Sandy impacted New Jersey in 2012, the NJ Coastal Coalition’s mission is “to build more resilient communities at the Jersey Shore by developing policies and best practices that will anticipate future concerns and to create solutions to be shared by all participants.”
Participating municipalities include Avalon, Cape May City, Cape May Point, Egg Harbor Township, Linwood, Longport, Margate, North Wildwood, Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Stone Harbor, Upper Township, Ventnor, and Wildwood Crest.
The Coastal Coalition’s Stakeholders include The Press of Atlantic City, Ocean First Bank, Cape May County Association of Realtors, South Jersey Gas, SJ Hauck Construction / International Association of Structural Movers, and Longport Media.
Participating Insurance Stakeholders include Thomas H, Heist Insurance Agency, Brown & Brown of New Jersey, McMahon Insurance, Risk Reduction Plus, and J. Byrne Insurance.
Due to Sea Isle City’s excellent status in FEMA’s CRS Program and proactive efforts to mitigate flooding, Sea Isle was chosen to receive the Coastal Coalition’s very first “Flood Cam,” which is located at 40th Street and Central Avenue and is hosted by the Coastal Coalition ongoing. The Flood Cam can be accessed by clicking the “Webcams” link on the home page of https://www.seaislecitynj.us/.
