Title

A Resolution Of The City Commission Of The City Of Hollywood, Florida, Creating A Dune Master Plan Task Force Consisting Of Eleven (11) Members.

Staff Recommends:  Approval of Resolution

 

 

Explanation:

Established dunes provide protection to upland properties and infrastructure by serving as a buffer from storm damage and flooding by coastal waves and elevated sea levels.   Additionally, they help prevent beach erosion caused by increased high tide and king tide events.   Vegetated dunes provides habitat to a distinctive subset of regional biota that is particularly well adapted to survive beach conditions.   

 

Hollywood beaches support between 100-150 marine turtle nests annually with each nest averaging 110 eggs, resulting in thousands of hatchling turtles within the City.

 

The City of Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency retained Moffat & Nichol to prepare a preliminary Dune Master Plan.   The Dune Master Plan is consistent with the goals of the City’s Sustainability Action Plan.

 

The Chief Civic Affairs Officer and the CRA Executive Director recommend the creation of a Dune Master Plan Task Force.  The Task Force will assist in developing recommendations for an Action Plan that will outline steps the City should take to establish dunes along Hollywood Beach, soliciting community input and provide public outreach.
