Surfers’ Point Managed Retreat Phase 2 update

 The final design for Phase 2 of the Surfers Point Managed Shoreline Retreat Project has been completed.  The proposed project will move the fairgrounds pay parking lot back to where Shoreline Drive is today and restore a cobble and sand dune beach as protection for the new parking area.  Unfortunately cost estimates came in at over $10M dollars, around twice the initial estimates.  We are concerned that this high cost may delay construction due to difficulty finding grant funding, but Surfrider will be working with the responsible agencies to determine a path forward.  Stay tuned…
