A neighborhood battle is brewing on Long Beach Island, N.J.

Beachfront property owners need to sign an easement that would grant approval to a $25 million beach replenishment project.

So far, 255 oceanfront home-owners have signed their easements, but 230 have not. So, what is the problem?

Ocean front homeowners say they do not want the dunes built because they are afraid the dunes will block their view of the ocean. They also are worried the township will build public bathrooms or a boardwalk next to their homes.

The Mayor says that the dunes will only go up another 2 to 3 feet. The project is aimed at protecting the island – so everyone can enjoy it. A similar project is underway at Harvey Cedars.

What do you think?
