However, crowds have begun to develop, and Belmar has taken notice.

Belmar Mayor Mark Walsifer has signed Belmar Borough Emergency Order No. 2020-01, which is an Emergency Parking Declaration for “Resident Parking Only” for designated areas within the Belmar.

Town officials announced that 16th Avenue South to North Boulevard including B Street, Snyder Avenue, A Street, Surf Avenue, 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th Avenues will be “Belmar Resident Parking Only." These parking restrictions will remain in place as long as New Jersey in a State of Emergency due to COVID-19.

It will be interesting to see if other Jersey Shore towns will follow Belmar. Stay tuned.
