Beach replenishment is a project that takes place along many coastal areas in both New Jersey . The objective of beach replenishment is to create a wider beach and a strong do system that will be more resistant to storms and hurricanes. Some areas of Long Beach Island have already had beach replenishment projects take place, such as Surf City, Harvey Cedars, and northern sections of Brant Beach in Long Beach Township. The beach replenishment projects proved their worth and Hurricane Sandy as these areas suffered less damage than they would have had beach replenishment projects not been in place. While there are some opponents to the beach replenishment projects, the majority of residents on Long Beach Island support the endeavor. Recently, a Long Beach Island beach replenishment update was published that highlights the future of this project.

Beach Replenishment and the Impact on the Long Beach Island Real Estate Market

Beach replenishment has positives and negatives for the LBI real estate market. In the long term, beach replenishment will provide a more secure and storm ready Long Beach Island. This will be a great asset to the LBI real estate market as investments made in short homes will be more secure and safe. In the short-term, there will be some negative impacts caused by the beach replenishment project mainly in the areas of summer rentals. Summer rentals on Long Beach Island are a major component of the LBI economy, and unfortunately with the beach replenishment project working year-round this will be an intrusion on some tenets enjoyment. While there are short-term downsides to the project working throughout the summer season, the long-term benefits to the area will be more than worth it.
