Good Community Space vs. Public Access

“I say it all the time that good community space builds good community because something that can be shared by everybody is good for society,” Buckley said. “Rich or poor, young or old, Black, white, Latino, when you do it right, it brings people together.”

Very nice article from down in Maryland on the lack and closing off of public access to a natural resource and how some people respond to the closures of public access. Even with NJ’s recent ruling on high tide access along the Jersey coast there are towns in NJ who believe that public access to such natural resources should be limited to a select few.

If a homeowner or town accepts public money in NJ they must not be allowed to thwart, block or hinder public access to a water-front.
