Review - Public Access meeting Seaside - NOT GOOD
I understand that it was in the middle of the workday on a Monday - but there sure were enough fisherman's trucks parked at the street ends between Bayhead and Seaside. If half those guys had shown up to the meeting we could have made an impact.
This is the biggest, most important fight we've ever had and as of right now, we're losing.
No, let me rephrase that - We're giving it all away
There were about 50 people there probably 20 of them were marina owners and town mayors speaking out in favor of the new rules
One of the people who spoke used a line that resonated with a lot of us.
"The impact of the 2007 rules were harsh and difficult for the marinas and for the industrial plants in the north - but don't fix that by ruining beach access"
"Fix what's broke - If it's not broke leave it alone"
We have one final chance to make ourselves heard:
Thursday, June 2nd 2011, 7PM
Long Beach Township Court Room (same as Council Chambers)
6805 Long Beach Boulevard, Brant Beach, NJ 08008
FYI, this meeting is deep in in enemy territory.
Long Beach Township is the town that's wants money for sand but refuses to give access to get that money - it's Been an ongoing battle for going on two years now. Combined with the fact that the DEP has been sending letters to local municipal leaders to come and speak out (Lobbying against you with your taxpayer monies) - There's going to be a lot of pro change voices in the room
Sneaky tactics by the DEP so we absolutely have to overwhelm them with numbers or we are going to lose this fight
Don't be apathetic, don't think "Well, plenty of guys will go so I don't need to" - FAIL - Everyone has to go, SRSLY everyone! We have one last chance - please don't blow it!
