Ocean Wind Energy

Blustery winds are a routine part of daily life in Avalon, no matter what the season.  Whether you are an avid cyclist, a tennis player, a beachgoer anchoring your umbrella or a homeowner securing your trash from wind and seagulls, we all know that a strong gusty wind may wreak havoc with your plans! Our local weatherman, Nick Pitman, known affectionately as Nor’easter Nick, reports on wind status often.



The issue of how builders maintain their sites is one of long standing. AHLOA has, in the past, taken steps to urge better enforcement and less intrusive job sites.

 Recently, residents, including your Association, have again raised these matters with Borough officials.  The Borough government has responded by focusing on enforcement of current laws and by promulgating new code designed to make home-building site more neighborhood friendly.  For example, a new feature allows the Borough to shut down sites completely.
