Council Sees First Options For Long Branch Boardwalk/Bluff Reconstruction

By Chris Sheldon

The city council got its first look at some of the options it will have when selecting a design for the reconstruction of the bluff and boardwalk from Morris to Brigthon Avenue.

“I’m going to explain the general solution we are taking, there are no specific solutions,” Talwar said during the April 8 council meeting.

Long Branch Police Sgt. Charles Shirley, who was been spearheading the city’s discussions with FEMA for funding for the rebuild, said the idea is to design something that could withstand another Hurricane Sandy-like storm.

“We’re looking at resiliency, that’s what we are focusing on, because we’re trying to make sure that whatever we put back is going to last through the next storm,” Shirley said.
