The COVID-19 pandemic is of ongoing and critical concern across the Nation, including in communities throughout the NY and NJ Coastal Restudy area. Even amidst an emergency like this pandemic, knowing how floods and other natural disasters can impact communities—and how you can take action to prepare and reduce those risks—remains vitally important. FEMA is committed to keeping the flood mapping process moving and regularly communicating updates on our efforts. FEMA continues to advance the NY and NJ Coastal Restudy and is working to complete the second of five Intermediate Data Submittal (IDS) reports which will document validation of the storm surge analysis and wave model.

Beach Guidelines Announcement from the Bay Head Improvement Assiciation
As we monitor the number of patrons entering the beach we want to advise you that due to the situation of an eroding beach, the dry sand area has been substantially reduced. We therefore want you to be aware that there will possibly be days or partial days that we will have to close some or all beach access points to all patrons holding beach badges (including seasonal and half season) as well as suspending the sale of daily badges. We regret this may become a possibility, however the combination of State distancing, crowd control and a shrinking beach area, we may have no other option. As disappointing as it may be, safety and health concerns of our patrons and staff is and will be our utmost priority. We sincerely appreciate your support and understanding. We, the Officers of the BHIA want everyone to know that no definite decision has been made to close all or any beach access points. We merely are reminding all of our patrons that, because of conditions beyond our control, it may become necessary. We emphasize that such action, if taken, will be a last resort. Several people have suggested that we eliminate or limit the sale of daily badges. There have been several times this summer when we have ceased selling daily badges when we thought that it would be beneficial for crowd control purposes. Although that is an option that we will continue to pursue, it must be remembered that the BHIA is under court order to make daily badges available. As such, we are obligated to tread carefully on that issue. We cannot emphasize enough that our sole objective is to provide a beach experience that is as enjoyable and safe as circumstances shall permit. We are grateful for the comments which have been posted here and I assure you that they have been and will be taken into consideration when we set our policies. This Association belongs to all of you who go to the beach and your input assists us in our job to provide you with the service that you should expect. It there are any concerns which anyone sees while on the beach, we ask that you alert one of our employees so that it may be properly addressed.
