“Definitely happening in May extending into June”

About Ocean Park beach being “truly restored” like Chix Beach was:

“This is a substantial volume of sand.”

Watch discussion by Jim White & Dan Adams with Prez of OPCL.

About “truly restored” vs “placement sites” for beach nourishment:

“Then we’re going to turn our sights on Cape Henry Beaches.”

About the pile of sand at Lynnhaven Boat Ramp:

“We plan on doing a truck haul, & place that material between Page Avenue & the gazebo at Duck Inn.”

About volume of sand:

“Truly restored” Ocean Park beach is getting ~ 400,000 cubic yards, LBR holds ~ 60,000 cubic yards, when Lynnhaven Inlet is dredged – happening soon – that yields ~ 100,000 cubic yards.

Proposed Orsted use of Lynnhaven Boat Ramp & Beach Facility including CC presentation.

View Powerpoint presented to City Council Informal Session FEB 4 ’20.

Just 3 of the questions to consider:

Was Parks & Recreation consulted re: the recreational boaters use of LBR&BF boat parking expansion being delayed again?

Was Public Safety & Traffic Engineering consulted re: recreational boaters backing up into the surrounding residential streets and onto Shore Drive in both west & east directions?

Was anyone tasked with studying the loss of revenue from the delay, again, of expanding recreational boat parking especially considering the recent loss of Boatel use?

Note: Questions are simply related to the location at LBR&BF of this proposed plan.

There’s potential expanding LBR&BF recreational boat parking could be delayed even longer as well:

Six (6) months – up to three (3) additional six (6) month terms for a
total of two (2) years
