N.J. environmental group wants proposed coastal access rules to allow urban residents use of bays, rivers

NEWARK — Carol Johnston grew up in Newark, barely aware that it had a river.
“It was locked away behind dirty, rusty fences” or other barriers,” she said.
Yet like the state’s 127 miles of sandy ocean beaches, urban rivers and bays are supposed to be just as accessible to the public under the law.
But proposed changes to the state’s coastal access rules could have a big impact in urban and industrialized parts of the state, according to a coalition of environment and beach access groups who want the proposed rules to be improved. They say a rewrite of coastal access rules due out next month doesn’t ensure that the residents of poor or urban communities can fish, walk along or even look at rivers or bays.

The Jersey Shore Chapter is looking for someone to head up a Rise Above Plastics (RAP) campaign here at the Jersey Shore. Check out the Rise Above Plastics Blog to see what a campaign here in NJ might look like. Let us know if you are interested.
Thanks to all the volunteers who came out today to help clean-up the beach!
