Broward County Hosts Public Meeting on Beach Renourishment

Broward County Commissioner, Chip LaMarca, will host a public meeting on the Shore Protection Project for Segment II: Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Fort Lauderdale, on Wednesday, December 16, 2015, in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Representatives from the project contractor will be on-hand to answer questions along with technical experts from the Broward County Division of Environmental Planning and Community Resilience.

An update on the beach renourishment project timeline will also be provided at the event.

The purpose of the Segment II renourishment project is to reconstruct areas of eroded beach and increase storm protection to the upland development along portions of the shoreline.

The project will place approximately 750,000 cubic yards of sand along 4.9 miles of shoreline between Hillsboro Inlet and Port Everglades.
