Subject: Winter “Bomb Cyclone” – Beach Access/Dune Crossovers Damaged
Date: January 4, 2018


Last night’s high tides associated with the winter “Bomb Cyclone” severely damaged many of our City’s Beach Access/Dune Crossover locations. Earlier today City Staff conducted an inspection of all City Beach Access/Dune Crossover locations.

following Beach Access /Dune Crossover locations are open for public usage:

North of SR100 
North 23rd Street 
North 12th Street 
North 8th Street 
North 7th Street 
North 3rd Street 
North 2nd Street 

South of SR100

The Beach will remain open and please remember the following:
  • Please utilize the above Beach Access/Dune Crossovers only. Do not walk on or across the Sea Dunes to prevent further erosion of the Dune system. City Ordinance 6-9 prohibits the destruction, harm, molestation, cutting, harvesting, removal or eradication or cause of destruction of any plant life on the Dune areas within the City, east of Highway A1A.

  • Please do not attempt to utilize closed Beach Access/Dune Crossover locations. Closed locations have clearly visible yellow “Caution” tape and wooden boards blocking access. These locations have been deemed unstable and have hereby been closed for public safety.

  • The City will be conducting a Beach Cleanup in the next couple of weeks to remove debris that has washed up on the Beach. Please utilize caution when walking on the Beach.

  • The Beach Cleanup will be similar to those conducted after Hurricane Matthew. The City will announce the Beach Cleanup date as soon as possible and Volunteers are welcome!
We’d like to thank our residents and visitors in advance for their patience as we once again embark on repairing Beach Access/Dune Crossover locations in our City. Additional inspections of the Beach Access/Dune Crossover locations will be conducted in the next two (2) weeks and a schedule for repairs and/or replacement will be issued to the public once these inspections have been completed.

As a City we’re committed to repairing and/or replacing all of the damaged Beach Access/Dune Crossovers and City Staff will continue to work diligently in order to get this task accomplished. When additional Beach Access/Dune Crossovers are re-opened, a Public Service Announcement/Media Release will be issued.
