The Seaside Park Annual Memorial Day Ceremony will be held on the Borough lawn on Monday, May 27th beginning at 9:30 am.
The Borough of Seaside Park, located on the Barnegat Barrier Island in Ocean County, New Jersey, was incorporated in 1898. Seaside Park is a small town of only 0.77 square miles with a year-round population of just over 2,200 residents. With almost two miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, the borough’s main industry is summer tourism. Seaside Park is bordered on the north by the Borough of Seaside Heights and its amusement arcades, rides and boardwalk. To the south is South Seaside Park, which is an unincorporated section of Berkeley Township, and Island Beach State Park.
Seaside Park is located across the Barnegat Bay from Toms River, the county seat of Ocean County. It is easily reached by Route 37 from the west (Garden State Parkway exit 82 or Route 70 to Route 37 east) or Route 35 from the north (Garden State Parkway exit 98, Route 34 east to Route 35 south).

To assist in the recovery from Superstorm Sandy, New Jersey received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) an initial allocation of approximately $1.8 billion of Community Disaster Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to be used to satisfy needs arising from the storm that are not satisfied by other funding sources. Governor Chris Christie has tasked the NJEDA to administer $460 million of these funds to support the recovery of storm-impacted businesses. Of this total, $260 million will fund the Stronger NJ Business Grant program.
We understand the hardships still being experienced by customers whose homes and belongings were damaged by Hurricane Sandy. JCP&L remains committed to working with federal, state and local agencies in a coordinated effort to rebuild and restore your service.
To make arrangements to have your electric service restored, removed or disconnected, please contact JCP&L at 800-662-3115. A JCP&L customer service representative will create and provide you with a notification number to easily identify and track your specific work request.

Meter Reset – If your home’s electrical system was damaged and the required work has been completed, please contact your municipality to schedule an electrical inspection (an inspection is required before service can be restored). They will send confirmation of the inspection to JCP&L. If there is no additional work required, your meter will be set in 3-5 days. In cases where a new service line needs to be run to your home or other construction is required, please allow at least 7-10 working days.
Home demolition – If you are demolishing your house, please contact JCP&L at 800-662-3115 to arrange to have your service wire and meter removed. To ensure the safety of the workers and the community, the electric service must be retired before demolition.
House raising – If you are raising your house the electric service also must be disconnected to ensure the safety of the workers and the community, please contact JCP&L at 800-662-3115 to schedule a disconnect. When construction is completed and an electrical inspection has been performed, your municipality will send the confirmation to JCP&L and your service will be restored.

The Christie Administration has received approval from the Obama Administration to move forward with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery Action Plan. This plan outlines how we will utilize the first phase of the emergency supplemental passed by Congress in January. The first $1,829,520,000 in CDBG funds provided to New Jersey by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will focus primarily on helping homeowners, renters, businesses and communities impacted by Super Storm Sandy.
Superstorm Sandy survivors who had storm-related damages in New Jersey have just one day left to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Residents must register for disaster assistance by midnight (EDT), May 1.
Survivors can register online and check on the status of their applications at DisasterAssistance.gov, via smartphone or tablet at m.fema.gov. They also can call 800-621-3362 or TTY 800-462-7585. Those who use 711-Relay or Video Relay Services can call 800-621-3362.
May 1 is also the deadline to return applications to the U.S. Small Business Administration for low-interest disaster loans, which is the primary source of federal funds for long-term rebuilding. Survivors can apply for an SBA disaster home or business loan by filling out an online application at DisasterLoan.SBA.gov/elaby midnight, May 1.
Effective Saturday April 27th the dry sand area of the beaches in Seaside Park will be open to the public. The Ocean County Board of Health has continued its restriction on recreational bathing, swimming, and surfing until the waters are deemed safe.
We want to thank our friends and family who volunteered their time this past Saturday, April 27th to participate in Seaside Park’s Community Action Day. Volunteers were at various sites throughout the Borough. They joined Clean Ocean Action to pick up beach debris and worked with the borough’s DPW to continue dune grass planting for the 3rd consecutive weekend. Other volunteers were at the 14th Ave pier area and O St playground area to paint pavilions and benches as well as bag loose debris. Many others joined the “bench line” at the Marina to paint 80+ benches and lifeguard beach boxes. We had over 100 people register as well as students from the local high schools participating with us.
Thank you for keeping the family in Seaside Park.
We are the “Family Resort” along the Jersey Shore.
To schedule an appointment to have your water turned on at your house, please call 732-793-3700. Someone must be present at the house at the time of the appointment. No appointments can be made on Saturday or Sunday.
