The city will hold a series of public meetings over the next two weeks to gather public input prior to rebuilding the boardwalk.

The concrete stanchions will be all that is left once the removal of the extensively damaged 2.2-mile boardwalk is completed. Schnirman and other officials had said that it was the city’s hope to have some sections of the boardwalk rebuilt in time for the summer season, a project that’s expected to cost approximately $25 million. But Schnirman emphasized on Wednesday that it was too early to say when the structure will be rebuilt.

“We’re moving aggressively through our 10-step plan, and as we get the public input, and as decisions get made regarding materials, that will give us a sense of how long it will take to get completed,” he said. “We’re looking to get this done as quickly as we can, but we don’t have a timeline as of yet. We have a plan, but we don’t have an estimated completion date.”


The meetings will be held on the second floor of the Magnolia Senior Community Center, 650 Magnolia Blvd., from 6 to 8 p.m. on the following dates:

• Feb. 6: Focusing on residents living between the east side of Grand Boulevard and the west side of Long Beach Road.
• Feb: 11: Focusing on residents living between Nevada Boulevard and the west side of Grand Boulevard.
• Feb. 13: Focusing on residents living between Maple Boulevard the east side of Long Beach Boulevard.
• Feb: 20: From 6 to 8 p.m., a city-wide focus group meeting will take place on the 6th floor of City Hall, with a presentation of the findings from online surveys and all previous focus groups.
