|June 10: Read what our city commissioners said about Flagler’s beach erosion at the 6/9 meeting|
Flagler County’s beaches are threatened…
…and threatened not only by erosion by the sea.
Our beaches, sand dunes, Scenic Coastal Highway A1A, and the very existence of our coastal townships are at risk of serious deterioration. Why?
- Dredging inlets and building piers has interfered with the natural stability of the coastline.
- The flow of nearshore currents and wave activity has been altered as a result of this activity and has caused gradual erosion.
- The reaction is to protect Scenic Coastal Highway A1A by building seawalls.
- Erosion is accelerated by seawalls.
We can’t change the past. The damage is done. But we can change the future.
This website is dedicated to resolving the issue of our beach erosion and associated damage. The organization behind it is a group of very concerned citizens and others who care about the beaches, the sand dunes, the sea turtles, the right whales, and yes, Coastal Highway A1A.
For without these things, we have little to attract residents or visitors. And without the people and businesses to support them, our unique coastal townships will wither, making them vulnerable to high-rise developments like the rest of the eastern seaboard.
If we leave it to our city and county administrators, state and federal governments and bureaucracies, there is only one solution: a seawall.
We are here to stop this decision, which has proven over and over again to have disastrous results, and to research alternatives and promote a sensible solution that meets ALL the objectives:
- Saving the beaches.
- Saving the sand dunes.
- Saving Scenic Coastal Highway A1A.
- Saving sea turtles, endangered Right Whales and local ecosystems
- Saving our towns.
- Saving our livelihood.
- Saving our very existence.
We need your help.
Join us in our fight to stop the building of a seawall and the continuous dredging and expense of renourishing the beach, and to promote a better solution.
