Belle Harbor Residents to Discuss State of the Beach
Want a say in what happens in Belle Harbor? The Belle Harbor Property Owners Association (BHPOA) wants to open a discussion on what plans have been developed for the stretch of beach between Beach 126th Street and Beach 149th Street.
The property owners feel that is important to clarify what sort of protection these streets will have. Certain questions are still up in the air like, what sort of increased protection methods will be used? And will there be sea grass planted on the dunes? The beach in the area, as is, does not provide easy access for residents. For seniors or a person with a wagon or stroller, getting on to the beach may be close to impossible, so the BHPOA is asking for a new design to allow for easier access to the beach. The residents are looking to know what the plan for the beach is and a timetable for the redevelopment of the area.
To help address some of these concerns, BHPOA has invited Acting Parks Commissioner Liam Kavanagh to speak at their meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18th at PS 114. The meeting will also include an update from 100 Precinct Captain Craig Adelman and comments from elected officials such as Congressman Meeks or a representative, Senator Joseph Addabbo Jr., Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder and City Councilman Eric Ulrich. The meeting is open to any concerned resident in Rockaway and Broad Channel.
