Borough of Avalon v. New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection


The DEP rules that require a municipality to allow public
access to tidal waterways and their shores "at all times" unless
it obtains the DEP's permission to close the area and that
require a municipality that seeks an appropriation from the
Shore Protection Fund to enter into a State Aid Agreement that
obligates the municipality to provide such additional parking
spaces and restroom facilities in proximity to the oceanfront as
the DEP may mandate are declared invalid.
