Page 32 > WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT RED TIDE? Plans are underway for renourishing a portion of the Pelican Bay beach in early December with sand to be trucked in from a nearby quarry. The project will be carried out by the county’s Coastal Zone Management as part of an overall beach rest ora t ion p r ogra m in Collier County. The Pelican Bay portion will involve adding sand to the eroded area from between markers R34 and R35 to between markers R36 and R37—the heavily used Foundation beach in front of the Marker 36 Restaurant. Funding for the project will be provided by the Pelican Bay Services Division. THE BACKGROUND In 2013, the Board of County Commissioners assigned responsibility for renour-ishing the private portion of the Pelican Bay beach to the PBSD. State statute dif-ferentiates “private” from “public” beach on the basis of public access. All beach is public below mean high wa ter. Anyone ca n wa l k along any beach near the waterline at any time. Above mean high water, beach is considered “public” within one-half mile of public access. F or P elican Ba y, that means the beach is “public” from the end of Vanderbilt Beach Road to about mark-er R33. County funds are used to renourish that por-tion of the beach. From the continued on page 3 The Foundation has partnered with FGCU’s Renaissance Academy to offer lifelong lec-tures and programs exclusively to Pelican Bay residents at the Community Center.
