It's really good that Gov. Christie emphasizes that dune replenishment work by the state won't include adding parking lots, restrooms, outdoor showers, or anything else along the beachfront area of Long Beach Island in Loveladies and North Beach, where about 30 property owners for years have refused to grant access easements ("Christie says dune easements must get OK," May 1).

The last thing that we want to do is to provide beach access to the New Jersey taxpayers who pay for beach maintenance, right?
