Some Fear Storm Fixes Going Forward Without Permits

Some advocates fear that some post-Sandy infrastructure repairs in New Jersey could lead to quick judgments on how to rebuild before thoughtful decisions can be made.

The federal government has repaired a breach in Mantoloking. The state is fixing roads on the narrow barrier island and is allowing towns to move ahead with other infrastructure repairs without first getting permits.

Environmental groups say that fixing damage may lead to quick decisions to rebuild other structures in a time when there should be careful planning about how and whether to rebuild.

But state Environmental Protection spokesman Larry Ragonese says the repairs are necessary and will not curtail a closer look at redevelopment decisions.
