Dune Restoration Project Delayed due to Current Unfavorable Conditions
Published on February 24, 2022
Unfortunately at the present time, there is insufficient dry beach width at Lantana’s Municipal Beach in order to conduct the Dune Restoration Project during the originally anticipated construction season. The Town of Palm Beach and their consultant will continue to monitor the shoreline conditions with the anticipation of returning in November 2022, following sea turtle nesting season. If at that time the proper conditions exist, dune sand will be placed in both the Towns of Lantana and South Palm Beach, as planned. The sand that will be used for this construction effort will remain in place on the beaches south of Phipps Ocean Park in Palm Beach. As our interlocal agreement remains in place, the Town of Lantana continues to partner with both the Towns of Palm Beach and South Palm Beach in an effort to promote healthy beach and dune systems along the entirety of Palm Beach Island.
Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this process!
