Assessment process proposed for Captiva beach renourishment

The tentative apportionment for the 2020-2021 beach renourishment project was presented to the Captiva Erosion Prevention District's board of commissioners at its recent meeting.

On Sept. 27, economists Drs. William Stronge and Gary Jackson reviewed their breakdown of the annual benefits of the project for private property owners, in terms of storm protection and recreation, and the resulting proposed method for determining the assessments for all of the involved parcels.

The information presented was based on data yielded from a Recreational Use of Captiva's Beaches and Economic Impact study and a Captiva Rental Property study that were recently conducted, plus an Engineering Design and Storm Damage Benefits report by APTIM Coastal Planning & Engineering.
