Flagler County Florida Dune/Beach Restoration Project

Flagler County is preparing to construct beach sand replenishment along segments of the Flagler County Florida Dune/Beach Restoration Project in the December 2020 to June 2021 time frame. This sand placement will be the construction of the shore protection project that will slightly widen and subsequently maintain the existing bean and dune conditions along approximately 2.5 miles of shoreline between North 18th Street and south 6th Street, between South 28th Street and Gamble Rogers State Recreation Area, and between Gamble Rogers Recreation Area and the Volusia County line in Flagler Beach. Construction of the project requires the establishment of an Erosion Control Line (ECL) along the length of the project. 

Please see the attached letter and information regarding this project along with a notice for a February 13, 2020 Public Workshop and Public Hearing regarding the proposed Erosion Control Line. 

An additional education session will be held on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at Santa Maria del Mar Catholic Church, 915 N. Central Ave. Flagler Beach. The early bird session begins at 4:30 p.m. and the regular session starts at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will last until all questions have been answered.
