Future of Brant Beach

Future of Brant Beach

Brant Beach continues to thrive, with improved infrastructure, a good business climate, low municipal property taxes rates, ongoing replacement of the housing stock, and a booming summer economy. The sugar-sand beaches are well groomed, uncrowded, and guarded. Both locals and newcomers remark on the clean, clear ocean water.

We continue to benefit from new and enhanced services such as the Beach Gator, which provides free rides to and from the beach for those with mobility challenges, community events such as Firepit Fridays, and facilities such as the Long Beach Township Field Station, opened in 2021 to promote marine education and research reflecting our maritime heritage.

Brant Beach is served by the Ship Bottom Volunteer Fire Company and the all-volunteer Beach Haven First Aid Squad. With a summer population twenty times as large as the year-round population, these volunteers are challenged to meet the demand. Residents are urged to support these organizations in order to avoid the necessity to convert to paid services, which could raise a household’s local taxes as much as $1000 per year.

The twelve-year reconstruction of the Causeway Bridge, officially named the Dorland J. Henderson Memorial Bridge, which spans the Manahawkin Bay is scheduled for completion in late 2024 and will help alleviate summer traffic problems.

Brant Beach continues to be a family-friendly destination with a bright future.
