If you missed it, we held a fantastic St. Patrick's Day Festival last Saturday. Staff and Volunteers did such a good job of organizing this annual event. We had a great turnout and will post pictures soon of the fun.
BEACH NOURISHMENTYou are all invited to attend a public information meeting about the upcoming Beach Nourishment Project on this Thursday, March 30, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. in the Indian Shores Municipal Center's 4th Floor Community Center (19305 Gulf Boulevard).
Representatives from Pinellas County and the 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. Easements will allow the work to continue and keep beach areas open to the public. The county will have a notary onsite to facilitate executing easement paperwork.
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.
Don't forget to help out with cleanup of the Indian Shores' beaches by participating in the Great International Coastal Cleanup this Saturday, March 25, 8 a.m. - 12:00 noon. You can register online at this link. Breakfast goodies will be available for participants. See flyer below for more details.
