North End Association / NEWT

As a community service, SICTA is providing the following material for informational purposes only – it does not necessarily represent any of SICTA’s positions.  The North End Association (and its sub-group, NEWT) is a separate and distinct organization, with its own views and membership.  

North End newsletters:  Winter 2010    Spring/Summer 2008    Spring 2008    Fall-winter 2007       Spring-summer 2007
What is the North End Association (and NEWT)?

Passive Park. 
The Steel Pier investors have decided not to pursue an amusement park at the landfill site in the North End.  An alternative use of this area is a Passive Park. 
See the
Planning Board Concept Presentation.

FEMA Discounts and the Sewer Extension.  If you read the August 2006 SICTA newsletter, you know that Sea Isle City homeowners are missing out on significant discounts on their Federal Flood Insurance because the sewers haven’t been extended from 22nd Street to 1st Street.  Ocean City and Avalon enjoy 15% discounts.  The North End Association is committed to pursuing the sewer extension.

We encourage all SIC homeowners to contact the officials listed below and urge them to assist us in our pursuit.  Here is one set of sample letters, and here is another set.
