Bill Kunz attended the DEP hosted “Beach Access” public meeting in Long Beach Township. He guessed it was attended by about 200 people:
Fishermen-don’t restrict us further
Marinas – made a summary presentation of their previous, emphasizing the liabilities a
24/7 access requirement would impose on them (and perhaps other businesses with Bay locations. It is probable that the DEP will recognize these problems,
provide some exemptions.
Surfriders – made a presentation emphasizing the “No Access”, and “Private
Property” signage through North Beach and Loveladies.No recognition
of access provided in other parts of LBT.
Next step is for the DEP to issue their final report, including the rules and regulations, probably in the next several months (no time frame indicated).
LBI Consolidated: Have hired an architect for the expansion of EJ, as well as a financial advisor for the project.
Expect to have a new Business Administrator by the end of June; a new Superintendent sometime.
Southern Regional: Little activity of late.
Ken Martell suggested we follow up on Peter Trainor’s letters to the editors, and consider inviting Attorney Vito A. Gagliardi who handled the North Haledon/Manchester Regional District
lawsuit, and who had offered to represent LBI several years ago (for a fee) for a meeting and briefing of the current status and possible strategies that might apply to LBI’s situation. This was made into a motion, seconded and passed. President Pat Moran will attempt to make contact.
Due to a number of situations, including room scheduling conflicts, it was decided to cancel the July meeting, and to move the elections to the September 12th Meeting.
Meeting was adjourned by motion at 7:54PM.
NEXT MEETING: August 1, 2011 ELECTIONS: September 12, 2011
