SEE DUNES PRESS CONFERENCE PICS >> Ventnor Mayor Bagnell and Longport Mayor Russo held a cold & damp press conference this morning on the Ventnor boardwalk at Oxford Ave. This particular location held historical significance: it was destroyed in the storm of 1944. Photos of that period were shared with those in attendance.
Both mayors expressed their concern about Margate’s fight to stop the dunes project. Both feel the lack of dunes would put Ventnor and Longport at risk in future storms. Margate appears in federal court on Thursday, Jan.15 to continue their battle: preventing the state from building dunes there.
According to The Downbeach Current: Mayor Russo of Longport said he has no problem with Margate’s position…he’s just concerned about how this will affect the adjacent communities of Longport & Ventnor.
