Visitors to Egg Harbor will find the village beach in good shape for this summer. They'll have to wait, however, until summer 2020 for a larger beach. The village had planned to expand the popular beach this year. Lisa Van Laanen, with the village's Parks and Public Works Committee, says the $500,000 project is on hold in order to accommodate the harbor's bass population.
Work on the beach expansion project had originally been set to start in March with all work to be completed by Memorial Day weekend. Van Laanen says with the addition of new and the beach will remain very user-friendly.
