Coastal Management: Easements for Future Sand Key Nourishment Projects

Thursday - July 15, 2021

To prepare for the next nourishment project on Sand Key, Pinellas County needs 461 easements along the project area. These easements are perpetual and allow the Army Corps to place sand on private property and allow the public to use the easement area since the project is being built with public funds.
The project area extends from Clearwater to Redington Beach, excluding Belleair Shore. The easement acquisition progress can be viewed and tracked on the Beach Nourishment Easement Acquisition map.

Easements still needed are labeled “In Progress” and easements that have been executed are labeled “Easement Received." Each easement extends from the Erosion Control Line (ECL) landward to the seawall or to the Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) if no seawall is present. The ECL can be found on the Erosion Control Line map.,27.8454,-82.8222,27.8602
