Long Beach Township has recently adopted an ordinance pertaining to outdoor signs.

The ordinance imposes a number of restrictions and prohibitions on where signs may be placed that advertise properties for sale and for rent.  The full text of the ordinance is available in the NBTA Issues and Announcement Section on our website.

For Sale signs are limited to one sign on any property provided that the sign is located entirely within the property to which the sign applies. One additional sign is permitted where a property has an excess of 300 feet of frontage or fronts on 2 streets.  All for sale signs must be removed within 15 days after the sale has been consummated.

For Rent signs are limited to one per property and shall not be permitted outside on the property. They shall only be displayed on the interior of 1 window located on the property.  One additional interior for rent sign is permitted in one additional window where are property fronts on 2 streets.

ReClam The Bay (RCTB) Raffle – drawings are held on October 4, 2020

NBTA Members – Attached is a flyer from ReClam The Bay (RCTB), a local 501(c)3 charitable organization, operating primarily in the Barnegat Bay estuary that provides education about the Barnegat Bay watershed (which includes Barnegat Bay, Manahawkin Bay, and Little Egg Harbor Bay) – how to conserve and improve it through shellfish-related, sustainable and resilient stewardship projects.  RCTB is an all-volunteer organization that relies on contributions from individuals and businesses to support their efforts to grow shellfish, educate the public about water quality in the Barnegat Bay estuary, and other “in the bay” projects like living shorelines.  One way RCTB raises funds is through annual raffle sales.  Since so many community events have been canceled this year due to COVID-19, such as Chowderfest which is a major source of their income, they are reaching out to the taxpayer/homeowner groups on LBI to see if their members can support RCTB by purchasing raffle tickets.  The attached flyer provides details on their raffle and how you can support RCTB.  Drawings are held on October 4, 2020.  You do not need to be present to win.
