Charlie Crist calls on President to intervene in Pinellas beach renourishment

by The 100 Companies

U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist is calling on President Joe Biden to protect Pinellas County’s coast against erosion.

Crist asked Biden to intervene in a decision by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that stalls plans to shore up a nine-mile stretch of sand from Clearwater to north Redington Beach.

The Army Corps recently honed in on a once-brushed-over provision that requires Pinellas County to obtain easements from all private property owners along the shoreline — even if no sand will be placed on the homeowner’s lot.

If Pinellas County doesn’t obtain the easements, the Corps won’t replenish the eroded areas.
