Removing a seawall and moving the beach back from the water will be some of the design elements discussed when the village of Egg Harbor’s Parks and Public Works Committee hosts a special meeting Friday morning. Officials have been working on plans to make changes to the beach for the last one-and-a-half years. Removing the seawall would nearly double the current size of the beach. Pulling the beach upland could help during storm events when sand routinely washes out to shore. Village administrator Ryan Heise says finding the right balance between green space and sandy areas will also be discussed.
The special meeting will take place at 8:30 a.m. at the Egg Harbor Beach Pavilion.
