EDISON - The fight for protective dunes along the Jersey Shore took several important steps this week.

Gov. Chris Christie signed an order Wednesday making it easier for Shore towns to build protective dunes and use eminent domain to do so. Christie has repeatedly called out local property owners who have refused to sign agreements allowing the dune project to begin.

In addition, the state Supreme Court ruled that protective dunes add value to shorefront properties.

However, no timetable has been set to begin constructing new dunes.

This Sunday marks 11 months since the storm hit.
