I am posting the below thoughts and concerns for a property owner who lives on Ocean Ave near the site of the proposed RV parking site. I am sure that many others have the same concerns as her, as I do also.
 
"I am writing to express my strong concerns over the proposed Residential RV Parking on the beach in Wildwood. I am not sure what would have prompted our city to consider such a notion but I have numerous concerns about the impact of this on our community. Most of my concerns center around the lifestyle issues of RV Campers, with grills, pets, drinking, etc. part of their “community”
 
A few of the issues that I am concerned about are:
•      The sound impact of having RV generators and engines running - presently we can hear the ocean waves from our property - a much more pleasant sound than motors and generators.
•      The environmental impact of the fumes from said generators and engines running constantly. And depending on the wind - a breeze we generally appreciate - could carry these fumes quite a distance through our town and affect everyone’s enjoyment of our beautiful beach and boardwalk.
•      The environmental impact of vehicles leaking oil and other engine fluids and, possibly septic fluids, into the sand of our beautiful beach.
•      The impact on the view of our beautiful beach. The trees were removed from the Hand/Ocean parking lot because some of the residents were concerned that their view of the ocean was impeded by them. I am sure these residents (as well as my family) would rather look at trees instead of RVs, Antenna, and other assorted rooftop paraphernalia.
•      Where will these “residents” dump their trash? Or their waste water? Or their cigarettes?
•      Will these “residents” be allowed to have alcohol? Tax paying residents of the Wildwoods are currently prohibited from having alcohol on the beach or boardwalk.
•      Will these “residents” be allowed to have domestic pets? Tax paying residents f the Wildwoods are currently prohibited from bringing their domestic pets on the beach or boardwalk.
•      Will these “residents” be allowed to have campfires or grills? Another thing that taxpayers in the Wildwoods are prohibited from using the beach for.
•      Additionally there are “wild card” issues of safety, security, and liability that defy prediction until they come to pass but could not help but cause a detrimental effect on our beautiful beach and boardwalk community.
In short, I am deeply concerned that our beautiful beach and boardwalk will degenerate into a campground the likes of nearby Fort Apache. In these economic times, I realize that government must embrace all options to remain solvent - but this would be a mistake. Wildwood has revamped her image in recent years and this campground would be several steps in the wrong direction. If an RV park is indeed the best solution, perhaps another location that be less impact on our beautiful beach would be smarter - for example, the old dump around Susquehanna. Another option to raise needed funds could be to charge for the beach access.

Even though I'm an outsider (visitor)  this whole talk about charging for beach access is worrying me.  
I think for the last 3-4 day trip we paid enough in extra taxes the city levys for the room to almost pay for a whole extra night.

The room tax is very high. I agree with the motel owners that condo owners who rent have an unfair advantage as their renters escape the what, 14% room tax? As for vehicles on the beach, my opinion is pretty much this state wide, only 4x4 vehicles in the off-season with permits for fishing only. I don't like the ideas of RVs on the beach, give them a nice batside location with appropriate facilities. The beach needs footprints, not oily tire tracks.

The E. Cresse Ave entrance also borders Wildwood Crest. I wonder if Wildwood is going to take into consideration what it's Crest neighbors think about sharing that beach entrance and using it for RVs?    George

It seems that whatever relatively few RV's that would be allowed entrance to the beach would be a negligible drop in the bucket money wise. Unless they are considering allowing large numbers it would not seem worth it.

How smart is this idea after they decided to put in the new Crest ramp that connects to the boardwalk at that spot?   George

I thought I had read somewhere that the RV's would only be allowed on the beach area until 11:00 PM, with no overnight parking. I am now hearing differently that overnight parking will be allowed. Also is there any truth to them building some type of "staging area" for the RV's?

I'm hoping if it is taking into consideration the crest  says no. I don't need too look at those and don't want too and my mother will also not want to look at That and my stepfather as well.

Troiano needs to have his head examined. He should be more concerned about the danger zones on and off the boardwalk instead of allowing RVs on the beach directy in front of a luxury condominium complex at that very busy E Cresse Ave location! If he realy wants to help raise revenue then tax condo and townhome rentals like they do motel and hotels! At least he's going to get a real fight from the people at Ocean Towers because they already declared war on his big idea at the last town meeting.    George

Last Thursday (according to www.nbc40.net) the number of RVs allowed on the beach was around 80.   George

Agree, but island wide.  If someone is staying somewhere for less than a month, it's all transient lodging on paper.  I don't see how the form of ownership or style of lodging should influence whether these taxes are collected on a stay or not.
