The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued a notice of a remapping proposal that would amend the boundaries reflected on coastal wetland maps applicable to the lot between Rosemma and Beck avenues in Holgate.

The bayside property, across Long Beach Boulevard from the oceanfront, was previously deemed wetlands – prohibiting development – until Superstorm Sandy pushed sand from the beach across the Boulevard and onto the lot. The overwash altered the area enough for the DEP to consider changing the status of the parcel of land.

Local developer Mark Davies recently obtained preliminary approval to subdivide the approximately 6½-acre property, which he said is part of a contract he has to sell the lot to the Trust for Public Land for preservation.

As the DEP notice states, “This rulemaking reflects the Department’s determination of current conditions in coastal wetlands reflected on Coastal Wetlands Maps 252-2112 and 259-2112 in response to a petition for rulemaking filed by Kevin J. Coakley, Esq. on behalf of Mark Davies Builders & Developers LLC, David Collins and Esther Tessel Collins, Kim Lambert, and Michelle Forte. The proposed amendments will amend the coastal wetlands boundaries reflected on Coastal Wetlands Maps 252-2112 and 259-2112 on the petitioners’ property and certain adjacent properties.”

“This is the rule that will remap the parcels in question as no longer being coastal wetlands due to the shifting of sand caused by Superstorm Sandy,” DEP spokesman Larry Hajna explained.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register on April 6. A copy of the proposal is available at www.nj.gov/dep/rules.

A public hearing on the proposal is planned  for 10 a.m. May 7 at the Long Beach Township municipal building in Brant Beach.

Written comments may be submitted electronically, by June 5, at http://www.nj.gov/dep/rules/comments, or in hard copy to: Gary J. Brower, Esq. ATTN: DEP Docket No. 02-15-03, N.J. Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Legal Affairs, Mail Code 401-04L; P.O. Box 402, 401 East State St., 7th Floor, Trenton, N.J. 08625-0402.  —J.K-H.
