Egg Harbor City is experiencing a renaissance. Major infra-structure investment has been the name of the game. Good examples are the redevelopment of Philadelphia Ave. and The White Horse Pike corridor. Large scale projects buoyed by new construction, both on the commercial and residential fronts, shows Egg Harbor City’s commitment to its residents. The current population is around 4,500. That number is on the rise again. Thanks to tireless work and a vision to build for the future, the community rallied around the need for enhanced educational facilities — conceived in that vision was Cedar Creek High School. Cedar Creek High School not only is a huge boost to the local economy, it reaches out regionally, and also was the impetus for a major residential new construction project which continues toady at “The Neighborhoods at Cedar Creek.” The Lands were purchased adjacent the High School for development of single family homes. Plans are to build a total of 400 new homes.
