Jim,

During the meeting on Feb 12th you had asked a couple of questions that required research on my behalf.  Those questions were as follows.

  1. Are we able to restrict the public access to the beach to pedestrian traffic only?

Unfortunately we are unable to block a public right of way in any way. 

  1. Is it possible to place arrows beneath the “No Parking” signs indicating where it is illegal to park?

 There is a process within borough ordinance that must take place prior to installing “No Parking” signs.  After careful research we were unable to find any documentation that the existing signs were placed according to that ordinance. The first step for that process is for the residents to provide a petition.  Your community has done so and submitted that petition to the RSA.  Next your petition must go before the Road Board for their approval of the signs.  This item has been added to the agenda for the road board meeting in May.  Once the board approves the signs you will be required to submit a “Sign Request Form” On this form you will request which arrows you would like placed on which signs.  Upon the Directors approval, the RSA will purchase the arrows and install them.    

I hope you find the answers to your questions helpful.  If you have any further questions feel free to send them my way.  The next board meeting will be on Tue May 12th at 7 pm via Zoom.  There should be a link on the borough website if you would like to attend.
