City Manager Jack Schnirman, right, Public Works Commissioner Jim LaCarrubba and Deputy DPW Commissioner Joe Febrizio met with representatives of the Army Corps of Engineers last Friday to discuss a new coastal protection project for Long Beach.

The Barrier Island Alliance, a coalition of local groups, including the West End Neighbors Civic Association and the Long Beach Surfer’s Association, that was formed in the aftermath of Sandy, said it is looking forward to the development of a comprehensive plan.

“We welcome the opportunity to participate in productive dialogue with the senator and the [Army Corps] so that we may work together to create an island that is safe and enjoyable for both the current residents and for future generations,” said spokesman Eric Landsman.
