CAPE MAY TRYING TO STOP SPECIAL ELECTION ON PARKING ORDINANCES

The City of Cape May has announced that it has filed a declaratory judgment action to seek a ruling from the Superior Court of New Jersey as to whether traffic and parking regulations are subject to a referendum vote. In a press release, the city says that council is concerned that it would require another election to overturn the initiative, if successful. “The City’s position is that by allowing the voters through the referendum or the initiative process to determine traffic and parking regulations, the City of Cape May as well as municipalities throughout the entire State would suffer a severe public safety risk since parking and traffic decisions are based on a comprehensive and detailed engineering analysis and follow the stringent requirements contained in the State statutes,” the press release reads. The Friends and Neighbors of East Cape May filed with the city clerk to get a special election.
