SEA ISLE CITY — Visitors to the resort this summer will notice something a bit uncommon to the northeast.
On Tuesday, Mayor Leonard Desiderio announced the city’s plans to plant temporary palm trees along JFK Boulevard.
In a news release, he said the city has struggled to establish trees that will thrive on the boulevard.
“We know these won’t be permanent, and we know we’ll need to do something else when winter comes,” Desiderio said, “but we thought this would be a nice touch, and we think it’ll look great when you come over the bridge.”
In other news, Sea Isle’s new pickle ball courts, also on JFK Boulevard, will be open for Memorial Day weekend, the mayor said. And City Council was expected to vote Tuesday on a resolution authorizing award of a contract to sell coffee on the beach, to accompany the permitted sale of ice cream and water.
