Ocean City expected to seize oceanfront land for shore protection project

Posted: Updated:
OCEAN CITY - Ocean City is expected to move soon to seize narrow strips of oceanfront land from owners whose refusal to grant permission for the work is blocking a desperately needed shore protection project.

With the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy just weeks away, officials in Ocean City are preparing to use condemnation proceedings to take control of land needed to build a protective sand dune system along the oceanfront.

Governor Chris Christie recently authorized the state to coordinate legal action against about 1,000 holdouts statewide whose refusal to sign easements has held up the dune work.
