    Bernie Moore, the “inventor” of Beach Replenishment

    Jersey Shore Partnership : March 27, 2018 4:00 pm : News

    New Jersey’s coastal community mourns the loss of Bernie Moore. Bernie served more than 40 years with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. During that time, he served as Director of Coastal Engineering and Administrator for the Division of Engineering and Construction. Moore became New Jersey’s leading expert on shore replenishment issues and one of its most vocal advocates for restoring beaches to protect lives and property. His steadfast leadership laid the foundation for the State’s beach protection program.

    Jersey Shore Partnership Opposes Offshore Oil and Gas Drilling

    Jersey Shore Partnership : January 30, 2018 2:53 pm : News

    The Department of the Interior has released the next phase of the 5-year Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program. The plan includes opening the entire Atlantic Ocean from Maine to Florida for drilling including all of the Jersey Shore and NY’s South Shore and would allow rigs to come within 3 miles of beaches.

    According to U.S. Department of the Interior, between 2001 and 2015, there were 589 oil spills in federal waters. An oil spill would destroy New Jersey’coastal economy, cause substantial environmental impacts and infrastructure damage; destroy property values, and result in insurmountable business losses.

    JOIN US IN OPPOSING THIS DESTRUCTIVE PLAN

    NJ’s Citizen Hearing & BOEM Public Meeting

    FEBRUARY 14, 2018, 3 –7 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Hamilton, NJ.

    Voice your opposition at the Citizen Hearing by testifying to a professional transcriber before stopping by BOEM’s Public Meeting to express your opposition and submit written comments.

    Please see fact sheet for correct stats. NY’s coastal economy is valued at 20 billion, not NJ’s. However, please note that a previous version may have stated this as NJ’s coastal economy makes up for about 2/3 of NJ’s tourism. Correct statement from fact sheet reads: “Most of New Jersey’s $44.1 billion dollar tourism industry success is generated at the Jersey Shore.”
