Township homeowners aren't the only ones who could feel the sting of changes to the proposed Federal Emergency Managememt Agency's flood maps.
The final pricetag on a proposed resource center for Traders Cove could climb by some $600,000 to bring the center into compliance with the maps - which have designated the area in a V zone, according to Township Administrator Scott Pezarras.
Pezarras addressed Township Council members' questions on the resource center during a recently-held meeting.
The estimated cost of the center - which will include a small kitchen area, a seating area, showers and bathrooms, accourding to Councilmember Susan Lydecker - would be around $1.9 million.
Council officials recently approved a resolution to go out to bid on the resource center project, but drew fire from some residents who complained too much money has already been spent on the area.
The site was destined to be turned into 65 foot-high condominiums at one
point, but was purchased by the township and, over several years, was
turned into the park that opened in May.
