So many people including myself have so many wonderful memories of Wildwood, especially during the summer season. I have spent so many long and lazy summer days on the beaches and boardwalks as a kid and as a parent with my two boys.

Big makeover plans are underway for the city of Wildwood according to Mayor Pete Byron and a report from the Press of Atlantic City. The Mayor is hoping for sweeping changes up and down Pacific Ave in the heart of Wildwood.

The mayor is hoping to have these changes implemented in a year or so. Pacific Avenue and Wildwood could look quite different in 2022 thanks to major development proposals that already have the green light.  Adding residential units to downtown Wildwood will hopefully revitalize the area.

Other make-over improvements include a midtown motel and restaurant on Atlantic Avenue and a 38-unit residential project which would be located on Magnolia Avenue. Makeover plans would also include the world-famous Wildwood boardwalk.

Another make-over is coming to Atlantic City. Get ready for a slimmer version of Atlantic Avenue as traffic pattern changes are coming to one of the busiest streets in Atlantic City.

According to the Press of Atlantic City, Atlantic Avenue's four lanes will be modified and now will only be open to two lanes of traffic. A center median will now be added along with two protected bike lanes. This should make people who bike as a mode of transportation extremely happy. Parking will continue to stay parallel along the curb.
