Court at Rum Point is the name of the new development being built on Brigantine Beach. That’s the name you see on the sign at the base of the Bridge as you enter our Island. The land, at one time considered Atlantic City, will eventually feature 14 houses in a cul-de-sac setting.
According to The Brigantine Times and former Brigantine Mayor; John Rogge, that piece of land was originally part of Atlantic City. But in the early 60’s, AC was in desperate need of sand. Brigantine offered Atlantic City tons of sand in exchange for that parcel of land.
Any taxes collected from properties on that so-called ‘Rum Point’ site, will go to Brigantine. The City of Brigantine approved the water and sewer hookup, the Brigantine Fire Department gave approval for safety.
The outgoing side of the bridge, is part of Atlantic City. Anything built there will have any property taxes collected going to Atlantic City. All emergency services will be supplied by Atlantic City. Sewer and water would be using Brigantine resources.
The views of the inlet and the Atlantic City casinos are spectacular there. This is just one more sign that Brigantine Beach is a prime investment, and our little island is on a massive rebound.
