A Ship Bottom property is the target of one of two eminent domain actions filed last week by the Christie administration against beachfront homeowners to secure easements that will enable the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct beach replenishment work.

The property in question is located at 1307 Ocean Ave., between 13th and 14th streets, and is owned by Stephen and Ellen Voda, according to the borough. Because no agreement had been reached, a portion of the property was left untouched during the beach replenishment project that took place in May and June. It was the first leg of a $128 million beach and dune construction project on the Island, now taking place in Long Beach Township and scheduled to finish in March 2016.
