Oceanside Protection Deal Inked

Upon receiving the contract earlier this week, the City of Long Beach has now signed the partnership agreement with New York State, allowing the Army Corps of Engineers to formally put together the plans and specifications and put their federally funded project out to bid.

“On the oceanside of our city, we will soon see the Army Corps of Engineers beach renourishment and dune project get underway after 30 years in the making,” the City of Long Beach said in a statement.

The City Council President, Len Torres, said: “The Army Corps of Engineers project is something this City Council demanded, and we are thrilled to see this critically important, long-overdue project finally moving forward – as we continue rebuilding a stronger, smarter, and safer Long Beach.”

Our City Council gave us clear direction – we can no longer tolerate leaving our barrier island and our homes unprotected,” stated City Manager Jack Schnirman.

“Since Superstorm Sandy, the City’s critical infrastructure has been upgraded with resilience, and this is another huge step forward of our continued progress. We sincerely thank Senator Schumer for his incredible assistance in making this project happen.”

Though it had failed to move forward before, the current City Council made sure that Long Beach would be better protected with an engineered beach and that the concerns raised by residents in the past were addressed as well.
