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

In compliance with COVID-19 guidelines, all regularly scheduled Planning Board meetings will be held via the conference app ZOOM (www.zoom.us) until further notice. The public is invited and welcome to attend and participate. Access information for each ZOOM meeting will be available on the agenda for the specific meeting date or on the calendar appointment on this website.
Any applications scheduled for hearing at this time will occur during the ZOOM meeting. Due to restricted access to the municipal offices, application documents cannot be viewed by the public. To accommodate this requirement, the pdf files of all application documents and prints for upcoming hearings have been uploaded to the Documents and Forms section of the Planning Board webpage.
In light of the CDC and NJ Department of Health recommendations to more tightly restrict public interaction, Cape May Point released a pdf Public Service Announcement and taken action as follows:
Borough Hall will be staffed as usual. However, the buildings will be closed to the public. This action is designed to allow us to continue to provide quality municipal services while protecting the health and welfare of the public and our employees. We encourage anyone with Borough business to please try to conduct that business via telephone or email. Visit our contact page to see a list of phone numbers or look at the specific Department pages to find email links. If you have a very pressing issue that requires a face-to-face meeting, please call to schedule an appointment.
All forms, applications (with the exception of marriage license applications), and payments can be made via regular mail or dropped through the mail slot in the Borough Hall vestibule.
Borough meetings will be limited to the regular meetings at 6:00 pm on the second Thursday of each month and the end-of-month work sessions. All meetings will be held electronically until further notice.
We appreciate your patience and consideration during these difficult times.
