An erosion control project that sought to protect some of the multi-million dollar properties along Nantucket's eastern shoreline was denied Thursday night by the Conservation Commission.

 

By Jason Graziadei           I&M Senior Writer

(Oct. 11, 2012 ) The Sconset Beach Preservation Fund has again been denied in its bid for an erosion-control project along Nantucket’s eastern shoreline.

For the second time this year, the Conservation Commission last Thursday rejected the SBPF’s proposal to install a system of rock-filled baskets and marine mattresses, covered by sacrificial sand, on public property below Baxter Road to halt the erosion of the Sconset bluff.

          

After weeks of hearings and an extensive review of conflicting reports and data compiled by consultants on both sides of the controversial effort, the seven-member Conservation Commission voted 4-3 to deny the SBPF’s permit application.

The sand was the thing we noticed first. Mostly because it hadn’t been there yesterday, or any day before yesterday, and now it was absolutely everywhere.

 

For the first 23 hours after the storm, we hadn’t been able to see much of anything at all. On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy had made landfall just south of Long Beach Island, New Jersey, the narrow strip of coastline where I spent my childhood summers and where my parents have lived, full time, for the past eight years. Now a day had passed, and information was hard to come by. My parents were fine; they had evacuated earlier that week to friend’s place 45 miles inland. But the power was out, and the 18-mile-long barrier island, which is home to 20,000 year-round residents, was basically abandoned, so we still didn’t know how much damage our house in North Beach had sustained, or if there were even any houses left in North Beach to sustain damage. Also, the rumors were starting to spread. The Ferris wheel at Fantasy Island has collapsed. A shark is swimming around Surf City. The waves breached the dunes. The ocean met the bay. Whole towns have been washed out. The rumors were not helping.

 

And then I stumbled upon Jay Zimmerman’s Facebook page. Zimmerman is a volunteer fireman in Harvey Cedars, the town next to North Beach. “North Beach damage,” read the caption on a smartphone video he’d posted on his wall. “Some ocean front houses are ripped to pieces.” Zimmerman had spent the storm on LBI, rescuing holdouts. Afterward he had ventured out to survey the wreckage. I clicked the play button.

But I was still surprised when I heard of plans to build a 6.5km gravel cycleway and walkway through its magnificent dunes, as reported yesterday.
