Sustainable Long Island Executive Director Amy Engel led the forum.

Some expressed disappointment that members of the City Council did not attend the meeting, while others said that their absence benefitted the forum.

“We specifically decided to have an independent organization — Sustainable Long Island — carry out the meetings without the council’s presence in order to remove any overtones of political bias or undo influences,” Council President Scott Mandel said, adding that the council will attend the Feb. 20 meeting. “We truly want residents’ unfiltered and honest thoughts in helping us repair the boardwalk.”
