Town officials visit Point Lookout to talk Beach Protection

On Tuesday, December 11 Kate Murray and other officials including Angie Cullin visited Point Lookout beach.

 
They called on state (New York state Department of Environmental Conservation-DEC) and federal (Army Corps of Engineers) officials to revisit the comprehensive beach protection plan that Long Beach backed out of several years ago and may be ready for now.
 
They say they’ve done some dredging and replenishment to help bolster the dunes here at Point Lookout. There’s also been extensive dredging to replenish the eastern side facing t Jones Inlet,  which was devastated during the storm.
 
“The damage underscores the need for a comprehensive Coastal protection project to move forward now to protect the barrier island from future storms and surges” said Murray.
