According to the August 1st western edition of The Southampton Press, “the Quogue Village Board will hold a public hearing this month to discuss the possible resurgence of a proposal to create a coastal erosion taxing district in Quogue, which would fund a decade-old plan to nourish a 2.7-mile stretch of ocean beach along Dune Road.”
The article further states that the “intention behind the meeting, scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on August 18 at Quogue Village Hall, is to hear specifically what Dune Road homeowners have to say.
The full article is available here.
In response to the overwhelming number of concerns expressed by the Quogue community regarding a proposed dredging project for the Village, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation will conduct a public hearing on August 10 at 6pm, in the Quogue Village Hall court room.
A state-appointed judge will preside over the meeting, which presents an opportunity for citizens to voice their concerns in person. Public input will be critical in determining whether the application for the proposed $15 million project will be approved.

‘Navigating Troubled Waters: Science and Coastal Management’
@ Quogue Village Hall

Co-hosted by CCQ and the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines , and moderated by PSDS director Dr. Rob Young, the presentation will be delivered by esteemed journalist, author and thought leader, Cornelia Dean.
Her first book, Against the Tide: The Battle for America’s Beaches, was published in 1999 by Columbia University Press and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
She has since published Am I Making Myself Clear?: A Scientist’s Guide to Talking to the Public, and most recently, has focused on the misuse of scientific information in American public life.
As writer-in-residence at Brown University, current science writer and former science editor at The New York Times, we are excited to hear Cornelia’s voice as we consider our own coastal management options in Quogue.
