Long Beach Township has established a Memorial Bench Program to create a lasting tribute for family and friends while enhancing our community. Because there are a limited number of benches, this program is on a first come first serve basis. Initially, the benches will be located in Bayview Park and then in various recreational facilities in the Township, such as tennis courts, handicap platforms, etc.
All bench locations and dedication plaque inscriptions are subject to review and approval by Long Beach Township. The dedication plaque that will be affixed to the bench backs will measure 2 ½” by 8” and will feature the headline “ In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of”. Donors can choose one of these phrases. The next two lines will hold a maximum of 28 characters each; the middle line will identify who is being memorialized and the last line will identify the sponsor or donor. There can only be one plaque per bench. A bench will be displayed for ten years from the date of purchase and at the conclusion of the 10 years a new bench and plaque must be purchased for continued participation in the program.
The attached application must be completely filled in and either delivered or mailed to:
Long Beach Township Public Works Administration 6805 Long Beach Blvd. Brant Beach, NJ 08008 Attn: Memorial Bench Program
The Township will review the application and you will be notified if your request is approved. At that time you will be requested to send a check for $1,000, made out to Long Beach Township Memorial Bench Program and send to the Finance Department at the above address. Please be advised Long Beach Township is not responsible for the replacement of benches in the event of loss due to vandalism or Acts of God including and not limited to coastal storms, hurricanes, floods, etc. If a plaque goes missing before ten years expire there will be a $50 dollar plaque replacement fee. Again, thank you for your interest in our Program and your participation will enhance our recreational areas and afford the public to sit and enjoy our exceptional views.
