Christie Critical of Those Who Don’t Want Dunes

Gov. Chris Christie has harsh words for oceanfront property owners in New Jersey who are refusing to let the government build protective dune systems between their homes and the water.

Speaking in Bradley Beach, where a dune restoration system using discarded Christmas tree is under way, Christie called such property owners “extremely selfish and shortsighted.”

The governor says he’ll look into ways the state can legally require dune systems to be built.

Some homeowners won’t sign easements giving the government permission to build dunes on their property because they claim the dunes block their views of the ocean.
