The Gloucester County Wetlands Board approved three shoreline improvement applications during a meeting July 10 in the colonial courthouse.

Frederick Carino was given permission to construct an 18" wide by 50’ long concrete wall along the outside of an existing foundation wall of an existing building. The improvements will be made along the beach landward of mean low water at property identified along the York River at the end of Clay Bank Road.

Linda Walthall, permit technician in the Environmental Programs Division of the Gloucester Codes Compliance Office, said that Carino’s application was approved with condition that a 2-foot high by 4-foot wide #1 stone under laid with filter cloth be placed along the north side of building with a revised drawing submitted to county staff.

Stephen Malise sought authorization to construct 255 linear feet of quarry stone marsh toe with nourishment and sprigging on property situated along the North River at 8800 North River Road. Walthall said that application was approved with condition that the area nourished in his previously approved joint permit application in 2009 be re-nourished and sprigged on 24-inch centers in existing sand nourishment.

Following a separate public hearing, the board approved the application of Millard I. Binswanger Jr., which had been continued from the June meeting. Environmental Programs Administrator Scott Rae said Binswanger was given the go-ahead to remove approximately 94 linear feet of failing timber bulkhead and replace with 94 linear feet of Class 1A quarry stone over filter cloth on a 2:1 slope adjacent to property situated along Sarah Creek at 1725 Lillaston Lane.
