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, its departments and the services that they offer. While some information on the site is mandated by state statute, 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. 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. Should you have any questions, please direct them to the appropriate Commissioner. You will find links on the Mayor and Commissioners pages where you can click on a link to send an email directly to them.

All property owners who rent their homes are required to obtain a rental permit. Applications are due by May 31st. For any application postmarked after the deadline, the cost of a permit increases by $100, no exceptions. All applications must be accompanied by full payment for the permit and the fire inspection.
You must contact the Fire Inspector at 609-884-8468 ext. 21 to schedule a fire inspection and it must be completed before you can submit your application. The Fire Inspector submits his report to the Borough. If no inspection report is on file, the application cannot be processed.

Every 9 minutes, an underground utility is damaged due to failure to obtain a free mark-out. Failing to call NJ One Call for the proper mark-out ticket puts the health and safety of everyone at risk.
