Two Jersey shore towns will move soon to seize narrow strips of oceanfront land from owners whose refusal to grant permission for the work has been blocking a desperately needed shore protection project.
Eleven months after Superstorm Sandy slammed New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie has signed an Executive Order, which declares the lack of protection for the Jersey shoreline opens the door to disaster.
Deadlines have passed to get signed easementsfor the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers beach protection project, but the state continues to take a diplomatic approach in getting property owners to cooperate.
Many homeowners along the Jersey Shore are the recipients of a letter from New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)Commissioner Bob Martin explaining the importance of creating a dune system and the need for easements to be signed by all oceanfront homes.
Signed easements for a massive federal beach replenishment project are starting to trickle in once again after Long Beach Township posted the names of 63 holdout oceanfront property owners on its municipal website.
Government officials have been planning for a new system of sand dunes along New Jersey's coastline, in order to prevent similar destruction that was caused by Superstorm Sandy, but some homeowners remain opposed to the idea.
