A scan of the comments that are posted will show you what we're up against.  There are a lot of people who want to see Long Beach and Pleasure Beach developed.  Bird habitat is synonymous with wasteland  in some people's minds.  Anyone can post comments in support of the protection effort.  The discussion boards tend to get pretty heated.


Sincerely,

Patrick
