On behalf of the Commissioners and employees of the Borough of Cape May Point, NJ, we would like to welcome you to Cape May Point's official website.

This site is for our Cape May Point "family" of property owners and the general public to understand the function of our municipal government departments and the services that they offer.

We will continue to add information to keep the site as up to date as possible. While some information on the site is mandated by state statues, most of what you will find is our way of bringing everyone into the world of Cape May Point in order to make their experience here more enjoyable and understandable.

Should you have any questions, please direct them to the appropriate Commissioner. You will find links on the Mayor and Commissioners page where you can click on a name to send an email directly to them.

We encourage you to use this site on a regular basis so that you are continually informed of what is happening in our local government.

If you have any trouble with accessing information contained within this website, please contact Elaine Wallace at or (609) 884-8468 ext. 12.


Unexpected Hydrant Flushing this morning - January 9, 2020.
