West Wildwood is a borough in Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. It is part of the Ocean City Metropolitan Statistical Area. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 603,[10][11][12] reflecting an increase of 155 (+34.6%) from the 448 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 5 (-1.1%) from the 453 counted in the 1990 Census.[20] The summer population grows to as much as 5,000.[21]

West Wildwood was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 21, 1920, from portions of Middle Township.[22]

Geography[edit]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 0.346 square miles (0.894 km2), including 0.276 square miles (0.714 km2) of land and 0.070 square miles (0.181 km2) of water (20.21%).[2][3]

The borough borders the Cape May County municipalities of Middle Township, North Wildwood City and Wildwood City.[23][24][25]

Located on a small island connected to Wildwood by a two-lane bridge, the borough consists primarily vacation and year-round homes with a single night club, a miniature golf course and several marinas. Created using landfill to cover existing marshes in the 1920s, the borough is surrounding by bulkheads to protect it from flooding, though heavy winds and high tides can overtop the flood protection mechanisms.[21]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

West Wildwood has been governed by a three-member commission under the Walsh Act form of New Jersey municipal government since 1964. The borough is one of 71 of 565 municipalities statewide that use this form of government.[36] The commission is elected at-large in non-partisan elections to serve four-year terms of office on a concurrent basis. At a reorganization meeting conducted after each election, the commission selects one of its members to serve as mayor and designates for each commissioner an assigned department to oversee.[7][37][38][39]

As of 2020, members of the West Wildwood Borough Board of Commissioners are Mayor Christopher J. Fox (Commissioner of Public Affairs and Public Safety), Scott W. Golden (Commissioner of Public Works, Parks and Public Property), Amy Korobellis (Commissioner of Revenue and Finance), all serving terms of office ending December 31, 2020.[4][40][41][42][43][44]

In June 2019, Cornelius J. Maxwell (who had been serving as Commissioner of Revenue and Finance) resigned from office, citing personal reasons. The meeting where Maxwell resigned was the first following the disclosure of ethics fines of nearly $25,000—the largest in state history by the board—that had been assessed by the Local Finance Board against Mayor Fox relating to his actions on behalf of Police Chief Jacqueline Ferentz.[45] In November 2019, Amy Korbellis was elected to fill the vacant seat.[43][46]

In the same May 2012 election in which the three incumbent commissioners were elected, the voters approved a ballot question shifting elections from May to November, extending the terms of the three elected commissioners by an additional six months, with the next municipal election taking place in November 2016.[47]
