Pinellas Plans Beach Renourishment for Sand Key
The county has scheduled a meeting to discuss the plan.
INDIAN SHORES -Pinellas County will host a public information meeting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday (March 30) about the upcoming Sand Key beach renourishment project.
The meeting will be held on the fourth floor of the Indian Shores Town Hall, 19305 Gulf Blvd., Indian Shores. The meeting will provide an overview of the Pinellas County Shore Protection Project, a cost share partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Representatives from Pinellas County and the Corps will answer questions about the project and the easements that will be required for portions of properties located along the coast where the nourishment activity will take place. Easements will allow the work to continue and keep beach areas open to the public. The county will have a notary onsite to facilitate the execution of easement paperwork.
Beach nourishment benefits the community by providing increased storm protection for property owners and recreational opportunities for beach visitors. It also creates important habitat for shorebirds and nesting sea turtles. The project aligns with Pinellas County’s strategic plan of practicing superior environmental stewardship to preserve and manage environmental lands, beach parks and historical assets.
