    Planting sea rocket, american beach grass, or sea oats would be a great idea. These species can survive the harsh salt spray from the ocean and help stabilize the dunes.

    Planting bayberry or wax murtle behind the dunes would also work. The salt spray would hinder their growth and would not let them grow tall obstructing views.

    Hmm now how do you get approval for this type of project.

    as much as it pains me to say this: sounds like a project for surfrider.

    "The scrub shrub environment on Assueteague should serve as a model. Bay berry, holy, and other low lying shrubs may allow the view to be maintained."

    And it sounds like the costs verses the benefits is not an issue. Every late spring they have groups that reinstall all the broke down fencing which surround the dunes. They could simply add a few head to those groups who could start the small test site at first and then if it proved successful,.. it could add a nice handful of extra jobs to the local economy every spring/summer, due to the need to plant and maintain the test site/s and any others that may spring up as the program become more well known and successful.

    I really believe that it would be a win, win, win,...for the dunes, the City and the property owners. It would be good for the surfers also. It certainly would add to the Towns idea that OC is A family resort,...cough, cough. I like that the people who come here and spend their money would view it as a positive and as been said already, add to the positive image of the City as a whole.
