The Placards were issued following Superstorm Sandy and were recently reissued by the Township.  Persons issued the Placards may access the beach area of the Township designated on the Placards and may do so to walk and jog, but shall not engage in any other activities on the beach. 

Two (2) adults, their minor children, and leashed dogs may use the Placard at any one time.  All Placards shall be prominently displayed and shall be held up and shown to any Township police and Township personnel in the vicinity."
