WILDWOOD- The city is looking to clean up the look of the boardwalk and create a more “family friendly” atmosphere- by having visitors clean up their outfits.
At Wednesday’s commissioners meeting, the administration introduced an ordinance requiring shirts and shoes to be worn on the boardwalk, and banned pants or skirts worn low off the waist.
“I do believe the barometer of our community is based on the boardwalk,” Mayor Ernie Troiano said.
The Hereford Inlet Lighthouse is among the attractions along the Coastal Heritage Trail. Senators want the trail back under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service.
A year and a half after the National Park Service lost management control of New Jersey’s Coastal Heritage Trail, New Jersey’s two senators have introduced legislation to reauthorize the trail as national parkland.
The legislation introduced by Democrats Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez during National Park Week, which was marked late last month, would return the trail to NPS jurisdiction through 2018. That would allow the NPS to provide support to the trail and to help visitors access its many attractions, which include Corson’s Inlet State Park, Cape May Point State Park and the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in Cape May County.
