State and federal officials will host a public meeting Tuesday night to take comments on a plan to "restore and enhance" 45 acres located within the southeastern portion of Cedar Bonnet Island, which are part of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge.

The purpose of the project, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the state Department of Transportation said, is to mitigate for impacts to tidal shallows and riparian zones associated with the ongoing Route 72 Manahawkin Bay Bridges Project.

The Environmental Assessment for the project is available for review at Forsythe's website.

The meeting will take place at the Stafford Township municipal building from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. A presentation will be given at 7 p.m. which will present information to the public regarding the Habitat Restoration and Management Plan and to facilitate public discussion and respond to questions.
