The U.S. Army Corps o Engineers, Jacksonville District, has begun preparation of an integrated Feasibility Study
and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) document to address coastal storm damages and risks along the
shores of Ponte Vedra Beach, St. Johns County, Fla.
Jacksonville District is seeking public comment through July 29 to its proposed Ponte Vedra Beach Coastal Storm Risk Management study.
Under a Feasibility Cost Share Agreement between the Jacksonville District and its non-federal sponsor, St. Johns County, the Corps is authorized to evaluate federal participation in coastal storm risk management opportunities for the shores of the county for a 50-year period.
The district conducted two public, virtual (online) NEPA scoping presentations July 15, 2021, to provide an overview of the project study area and the NEPA process. The district encourages the public to contribute their views, comments, information about environmental and cultural resources, study objectives and important features within the described project area for consideration in the study.
