Egg Harbor Township planners will consider a revised plan Monday for a controversial LED billboard on the Margate Causeway after three prior hearings were postponed.
In April, the state Department of Environmental Protection issued a violation against the Moorestown-based Jersey Outdoor Media for unauthorized development in a wetland after the company constructed its 60-foot-tall billboard in the marshy area between Margate City and Northfield.
The DEP later issued a Coastal Area Facility Review Act permit after the developer submitted revised plans. The new plan calls for moving the billboard’s pole 24 feet west of its current location and cantilevering the sign over the wetlands.
The billboard has been the subject of ongoing litigation between the developers and Richard Levitt, a Northfield resident and chair of that city’s Planning Board.
