Army Corps of Engineers Steps in To Fix Beach Parking At Shore Towns

Finally! Beach Towns May be Forced To Stop Limiting Parking To Outsiders or Non Resident's

One of the biggest obstacles to public beach access in New Jersey may be coming to an end.
A Jersey shore community that was devastated by Superstorm Sandy may drop drastic limitations on street parking that had the effect of making it impossible for outsiders to use its beaches.
Mantolokin NJ proposes dropping its longstanding law limiting parking to no more than two hours because the federal government is insisting on more parking as a condition of spending tens of millions of dollars on a beach replenishment project in town.
The Army Corps of Engineers said it will insist on similar parking and access guarantees at other beaches as well, potentially challenging or ending some of the most restrictive policies that shore towns have used to keep outsiders off their sand.
