Pinellas County is about to hold a public information meeting about the upcoming Sand Key beach nourishment project.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, March 30, from 6 – 8 p.m. at the 4th floor of the Indian Shores Town Hall.
Representatives from Pinellas County and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 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.
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.
