Shore up the shore
Flagler County — as part of its efforts to secure permission for the 2.6-mile Army Corps of Engineers beach renourishment project in Flagler Beach — has launched a website to share information about the project and has created an online survey for the 141 affected parcel owners.
The website, www.shoreuptheshore.org, includes a video to the Feb. 25 meeting held for parcel owners at Santa Maria del Mar, and a link to the meeting survey (https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/5166a7935c6348ee9be90d41b2d0ffc7).
The 2.6 miles, from the north side of South Sixth Street to the south side of South 28th Street, will be improved thanks to $17 million in state and federal funding, with no cost to property owners. But all parcel owners need to grant easements by March 25 for the project to begin on schedule this summer.
Property owners do not relinquish any rights to have private walkovers or decks. They are only granting permission for the work to be done on their dunes, including allowing agencies to replenish and maintain the dunes with sand and native vegetation.
So far, the city of Flagler Beach and Flagler County have secured 70 easements. Questions should be directed to 386-313-4040.
