In New Jersey private beach communities are reluctant to accept assistance from the state because it comes with strings attached, such as a requirement that public access be granted. What are the public access requirements under the easement required of plca by the state of Florida? Has anyone seen and analyzed the actual easement and any other requirements of the permits we are seeking? Does it require that we share our transport to the beach with the public? Does it allow boaters who now tie up at the north end to use our facilities? Does it require us to repair and replenish the beach forever, regardless of cost? Are we protected from claims that our installations have caused damage to other lands? Has the board periodically reviewed whether the current, long delayed plan is still the best way to proceed? If we knew then what we now know, would we have proceeded or chosen a different route?
