This restriction shall not apply to the holder of any seasonal pass which has been procured from the Township and which is validly issued and in effect on the effective date of this subsection.[1] Any such holder of a seasonal pass shall be entitled to utilize the boat ramp for the duration of the term covered by the seasonal pass.

Editor's Note: Subsection 9-4.5 was adopted by Ordinance No. 11-1990 on July 9, 1990 and became effective immediately pursuant to law.
[Ord. #11-1990, § 1]
The Township has imposed a restriction on the maximum length of a boat, vessel or water craft which may use the public boat ramp at Beesley's Point, for the following reasons:
a. 
The ramp cannot safely accommodate any vessel which exceeds 24 feet in length.
b. 
Vessels exceeding 24 feet in length create a safety hazard because of the slope of the ramp; the length of the ramp; the depth of the water at low and mid-tide and, therefore, present a substantial risk of injury to person or property in attempting to accommodate boats and similar vessels in excess of 24 feet in length.
c. 
Even in those instances where the ramp may accommodate a vessel in excess of 24 feet, the launching or landing of such vessels requires a longer period of time, thereby restricting the use of the ramp to other members of the public, which frequently results in long waiting lines for the use of the boat ramp.
[Ord. #20-1990, § 1; Ord. #3-1999, § 1; Ord. #008-2007, § 1; Ord. #015-2009, § 1]

a.

b. 
Such resident must complete an application on forms prescribed by the Township of Upper which demonstrates such residency; and
c. 
Verification of such residency shall be based on a copy of a current lease (seasonal lease is acceptable), tax bill, voter registration, or a State of New Jersey driver's license, or proof of filing of a State of New Jersey income tax return from a Township of Upper address.
d. 
If a Township resident owns more than one vessel such resident shall be charged 1/2 of the resident rate for each additional noncommercial vessel.
