Beach Fill Project Update No. 1

Dear All:
 
The Beach-fill project is about to begin!  Hopefully by September 9th, sand will begin to be pumped to our beaches.  The contractor has already laid pipe and will begin moving offshore equipment after Labor Day (Some of the heavy equipment is already staged at Lyman).  We will send pictures and provide updates as new information becomes available.  Once we get a firm date on the start, we will let everyone know— so wherever you are, you can make a toast to those who helped us get the project and to the workers that are completing the project (may they be efficient and, most important, safe).   Looking forward to seeing a lot more sand in Mantoloking.  It has been a long time coming. 
 
Best, 
Chris

Beach and Dune Committee Update

A quick update on where things stand with the beach.  1) Survey work is underway and it looks like the project may begin in Mantoloking on or around Labor Day weekend; and 2) Judge Ford ruled on the case that challenged the DEP’s ability to proceed with eminent domain on properties with the rock revetment (For those who love to read lengthy Legal Opinions, it is attached).  Judge Ford’s ruling was favorable for the project to continue.  What this means is that, assuming that the State proceeds with the Eminent domain proceedings against 11 Falls LLC (which there is no indication they will not), the State will have all of the properties needed to complete the project for the entire Borough.  We will continue to work with the State, USACE and the Contractor to get all of the project done for Mantoloking in one shot, but no promises.
