Coast Guard to hold ribbon cutting ceremony in Cape May, NJ

5th Coast Guard District NewsCAPE MAY, N.J. — Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay and Coast Guard Training Center Cape May will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the new multi-mission Coast Guard building here Friday.

Currently, the crews of Station Cape May, Aids to Navigation Team Cape May, Coast Guard Cutters Mako, Ibis, Finback, and the Vessel Boarding Security Team all work out of different locations.

This new multi-mission building will house all previously mentioned units. The buildings they work in, averaging 65 years old, were originally built to support Army activities. The move to the new facility will improve mission cpability.

The new building is 26,400 square feet with an accompanying vessel support building that measures 3,500 square feet, which provides the capacity to pull multiple units into a single building. The Coast Guard broke ground on the $11.4 million building in September 2010.
