We tried to help at the start of our work. We included the leaders of the bayside towns, Middle Township, Maurice River Township and Downe Township early in our planning, almost two years ago. Several of the projects were included in our proposal because the towns asked for them, such as the East Point project to be done next year.
In Fortescue, a beach town with only storm ravaged beaches, will now have nearly ½ mile of new beach. The town’s Mayor Bob Campbell is doing his best to build on our work with a new horseshoe crab festival on May 16th and by improving access that will help people use our beach after the crabs have moved back out to sea and the birds to their Arctic breeding areas.
