Beach Update

Weeks marine has completed the Base Bid option of the beach
replenishment project finishing 100 feet north of 1071 Ocean Avenue on
April 6. They will be working on the 3 crossovers there as well as
cleaning up the one at Princeton Avenue. It may be another few weeks
before they finish taking all the equipment to Brick so residents on
the south should be aware that there will be some activity in that
regard and also should keep in mind that this will continue to be a
24/7 project. The second and third options, 11 and 9, will be addressed
when Weeks returns this summer and a pretty good guess would be later,
perhaps August. The good news is that once they return they will
complete the project in it’s entirety. The final count for cubic yards
placed on the beach is 1,607,149. Ocean
front owners will be able to access the beach and ocean through one
“gate” on the property at the two fences west and east of the dunes.
That entry can be placed at the owners’ discretion.
As always, please feel free to write or call with any thoughts or questions.

Beach Update

There are several items I would like to cover in this post. The ACOE has agreed to work an additional 100 feet beyond the access point at 1071 which will allow us to use it this summer. Unless the weather doesn’t cooperate, we should have this first option done within the next 10 days, or so. Then they will leave and come back this summer. A quick explanation about the ADA access on Downer. The most recent code for this requires 12 feet of linear feet for every 1 foot of upward/ downward direction and, in addition, every 30 feet there must be a 10 feet rest area throughout the entire expanse of the access. Thus, the very large structure. We will be planting dune grass and other vegetation over the next several months and this will serve, in time, to make the access much more attractive than it is today.Lastly, there were munitions found offshore last week which included rifle grenades from World. War 1. This is not at all unusual for this sort of a job. A contractor who specializes in munitions was brought in to dispose of them. To date, 1,407,433 cubic yards of sand have been placed on the beach. All access points are open. Please call with any questions or thoughts. Councilman White 732-606-6988
