Erosion and drainage issues have been a problem for years on the bluffs in Sound Beach, but recent extreme weather has made those issues much worse and put homes and even lives in serious danger.
Recently, the Sound Beach Property Owners Association aired its grievances with Patch, saying they are losing members every year because of limited beach access.
The Town of Brookhaven set a public hearing for April 23 to discuss the acquisition of Steiner's Woods, a natural drainage area, through eminent domain.
Would acquisition of the property have a positive effect on the issues by the bluffs in Sound Beach, or make little difference? Are you for or against the town acquiring the property. Tell us in the comments section below.
