State blocks rebuilding of Plum Island home


The commissioner of the DEP, Kenneth Kimmell, appeared, at the public meeting here, to listen to Plum Island residents concerned about protecting their homes — and planning new ones if they had lost their property.

Kimmell subsequently said that residents could have limited permission to utilize sand “mining” to replenish dunes.
