Long Beach Posts Names Of Dune Project Holdouts

The deadline to sign those easements for the US Army Corps dune project has come and gone and Long Beach Township keeps one promise they made.

The Township has released the names and addresses of the holdouts who refuse to grant access for a project that could potentially protect the beaches and towns if another storm hit.

“At the request of taxpayers the following are the outstanding deeds of easement for the federal storm protection project,” writes the Township on the website. Sixty-three people are on the list.

The holdouts have expressed concern that their view of the ocean will be blocked and their property values will fall. Others want compensation in return for signing.

“How am I going to condemn somebody and pay them money when these other good neighbors didn’t ask for that?” Long Beach Mayor John Mancini told WCBS. “I’m not one for eminent domain. How do I pay somebody money when everybody else did it for the good of the community?”

“I have no interest in building anything besides a dune on your property”

During a town hall meeting in Long Beach last week New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vowed to get the dune built and used stronger language to chastise the holdouts and their reasons for not signing.

“We are building these dunes,” he told a cheering crowd. “And we are building these dunes whether you consent or not.”

Opponents worry that the easements will give the state the green light to build not only dunes nearby, but other amenities like bathrooms and amusement rides.

Christie argued, “I have no interest in taking your property. I have no interest in building anything besides a dune on your property and then replenishing that dune when it needs to be replenished.”

He said their reasons were ‘BS’ anyway, except he used the full word. According to Christie, the reluctant homeowners just don’t want their views blocked.
