  • On November 19, 2019, the Board executed the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) Project Partnership Agreement for the renourishment of the Central Beach and for additional placement of sand on Coquina Beach. The Board also executed 19ME2 and 20ME2 for State share of cost and for renourishment of Coquina Beach due to Hurricanes Hermine and Irma; and Florida Department of Environmental Protection ("FDEP") Agreement 20ME1 for State share of cost for renourishment of Central Beach.
