Greetings HCTA Members,
Welcome to the start of what hopefully will be a beautiful and fun summer.
Here are few updates on things happening in town and with the HCTA:
The results of the BLVD Safety Survey that was sent out by the Boro came back with an overwhelming response of 3:1 in favor of re-striping the BLVD to the three lane configuaration. Of the 1153 surveys sent out, 774 were returned to the Boro. The Commissioners passed a resolution in support of the new configuration at the Commissioners meeting on April 23, 2010. On Tuesday, May 4 members of the HCTA Board of Trustees met with the Commissioners, Ocean County Administrator, Alan Avery and the County Engineer, Frank Scarantino to move forward on this important safety issue.
The Beach Replenishment is still a work in progress with completion due around mid June. Because of storm damage to the beach on the north end of town, the dredge will shift to the north again to fill in sand. Planting of the dune grass has been halted because of the warmer temperatures but will resume again in the fall as the weather cools. The walkways are currently being installed. They are rail fence, not the old dune fences that where there previously. The Army Corps contends that the sand can move around more freely with this type of fence, thus assisting in the natural build up of the new dunes.
Don’t forget the HCTA’s Second Annual Town Wide Yard Sale! The sale will again be held on May 29th, the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. You can sell all your treasures and still have a couple of days to relax and enjoy beautiful Harvey Cedars.

This includes advertising done by the HCTA, signs, a flag to mark your location for buyers and listing in our “Treasure Map” distributed to buyers the morning of the sale.
Mark you calenders for our Annual Meeting. It will be held on Saturday, August 28 at the Firehouse. We will update you on what we’ve accomplished during the past year and our plans for the future.
Finally, we actively seek your input and ideas. We are taxpayers like yourself who love Harvey Cedars and volunteer our time to hopefully help make it better place. We have opportunities for you to get involved. If you would like to volunteer your time, please send us an email- the information is on our website. See you in Harvey Cedars!
