Egg Harbor to Raze Troupe Property
The Egg Harbor Village Board voted to raze the Troupe property at their Feb. 11 meeting after evaluating estimates for three different options brought forth by McMahon and Associates.
The village purchased the property, which dates from the 1920s, in September of 2007 so the village beach and park could be expanded.
McMahon provided estimates for a total renovation of the property, a partial renovation, and for demolition and rebuild. Village President Nancy Fisher said the latter proved most economical.
“The cost to bring the building to commercial code in a renovation is so similar to building new that we decided it would give us greater flexibility to suit our needs to tear down and build new,” she said.
Fisher said the building will be demolished by next summer and the village will be seeking ideas for what to include in a new building before a timeline for rebuilding is set.
