I am a homeowner in Harvey Cedars since 1985. The Dune Replenishment is for the common good of all homeowners in Harvey Cedars. If someone lost part of their view they can raise their home like most of the other homes on the ocean. The cost of doing this would be compensated by the increased value of their home. Also why should they be compensated when all the homeowners who have properties that they either raised or bought that were already raised receive no compensation for the added expense they incurred. My home is raised and I paid for it myself and I believe the dunes saved our town from devastation. What would the people who are sueing have cried about if we didn't have the dunes and their homes were washed out to sea. Who would they sue then?
