Keeping our coastline open to the public is paramount. This landmark case may make it to the Supreme Court and limit our access to beaches that had been public. It is tragic to think that some of our favorite beaches can be taken away by homeowners who can shut down access. This case could have far reaching implications for future accessibility to any beach. This is cause for the public to be concerned.
