Bonita Springs will renew beach renourishment agreement with Lee County

The Bonita Springs City Council has decided to renew its interlocal agreement with Lee county which is set to expire November 9,2020. The agreement, which focuses on beach nourishment, is an ongoing program to combat sand erosion through periodic sand replenishment from a donating source. If not, routinely maintained erosion could spread quickly creating a direct negative impact on our beaches and beach front communities.

The City’s role has been to provide a cost share along with overall project development, management and delivery. Upon State and Federal reimbursements, the remaining costs, which are referenced to as local cost share, will be apportioned between the City at 38.28% and the County at 61.72%.
