Mr. Cavagnaro Page #7 Height of homes in RR1 should be updated to 25 feet in height.

Flood Plain Management plan draft discussion/vote
Mr. Dooley inquired what our dune ordinance is. It is constantly referenced in the Flood Plain Movement Plan. It is mentioned that it should be enforced. Who is the Dune officer? (Pete Ritchings)Is someone enforcing it? Ray Savacool stated that any dune violation is enforced by the DEP. There is no one walking the beach to see if there is anything illegal. Mr. Dooley stated then why do we have a dune ordinance this is more serious than not mowing your lawn; this is serious. Mr. Winter said that this is a very nice document but it is like having a prison without having walls; the dune ordinance is useless because it is not enforceable. We should have an ordinance that we can enforce. Councilman Migut stated that when the dunes project gets its legs the dune ordinance will be viable; the dunes are coming, it might be a year but they are coming. Mr. Winter is upset that the board is going to vote on a plan and that the dune ordinance is not enforceable. Mr. Cavagnaro inquired if there is a contingency plan if the dune project does not go forward (No); he suggested that the homeowners and businesses be required to replace the sand under the boardwalk.

Motion by Mr. Winter, second by Councilman Migut to support the Flood Plain Management Plan with the recommendation of reviewing the Borough dune ordinance and the job of the dune inspector.
In favor: Dooley, Migut, Winter, Devon, Cavagnaro and Corbally
Opposed: None

Meeting adjourned at 8:10pm
Attest: Karen L. Mills, LUA
Clerk/Secretary of the Board
