Statewide Strategic Beach Management Plan

The Strategic Beach Management Plan (updated in April 2020) provides an inventory of Florida's strategic beach management areas and coastal barrier tidal inlets along the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Straits of Florida. The Plan identifies the state's critically eroded beaches and develops and maintains a comprehensive long-term management plan for the restoration and maintenance of these shorelines. The Department incorporates by reference the adopted Inlet Management Plans to address critical erosion along Florida's coastline.

Long-Range Budget Plan

During Fiscal Year 1998-99, the Department initiated long-range budget planning in order to develop beach management strategies beyond localized, short-term needs. The Department assists local governments in developing their Long-Range Beach Management Plans. Once developed, these plans emphasize a regional approach to beach management that encourages coordination among local governments, reduces costs, and provides long-term solutions to beach erosion. The time frame for long-range planning is 10 years.

Local Government Funding Requests 

The Fixed Capital Outlay Local Government Funding Request is a prioritized list of beach erosion control projects developed annually based on funding requests submitted by local government sponsors. The document is organized into two sections: “Beach Restoration and Nourishment Projects” and “Inlet Sand Bypassing/Inlet Management Plan Implementation Projects.” Each section contains a list of eligible projects ranked in priority order, based on the authority in Sections 161.101 and 161.143, Florida Statutes, and the procedures outlined in Chapter 62B-36, Florida Administrative Code. Projects have been evaluated by the Department, based on consistency with the Strategic Beach Management Plan, permitting status, readiness to proceed with the proposed funding phase and the appropriateness of the amount of funding requested.

To address future situations, the department shall make recommendations as to how current statutory ranking criteria should be modified to accommodate storm damage and other beach impacts, as well as current department processing procedures and timetables for local government funding requests, in annual project rankings.
