27 May: Adler Introduces Bill To Protect Beachfront Property Owners’ Rights

TRENTON – A bill sponsored by Senator John H. Adler which would protect beachfront property owners’ rights in regards to public shore replenishment projects was introduced in the Senate last week.

“Residents along the Jersey Shore know firsthand what a serious storm can do to erode the beach,” said Senator Adler, D-Cherry Hill. “However, many of these homeowners are rightfully concerned about giving government a lifetime pass to use their property for beach replenishment projects. There needs to be a better balance between the public interest and private citizens’ rights in beach replenishment projects.”
