    Actually it wasn't the beach front home owners. In fact the beach front home owners were the last ones to sign the easements. Having a publicly funded beach fill ment that the beach front home owners would have to provide beach access, parking and bathrooms. The thought of meager peasants walking through their back yard scared them more than loosing their home to the ocean. After all, they can afford to rebuild another home.
    It was the rest of the home owners behind them who wanted the beach fill, they had more too loose if the dune system were to fail.
