Florida Trustee Implementation Group Releases Phase V.2 Final Restoration Plan

The Florida Trustee Implementation Group approved its Phase V.2 Florida Coastal Access Project: Final Restoration Plan and Supplemental Environmental Assessment.

The Phase V.2 Draft Plan was released for review and public comment in November 2017, and held a public meeting in Port St. Joe on November 16, 2017. The final plan reflects revisions to the draft plan resulting from public comments and continuing project development.

The Salinas Park Addition involves acquisition and enhancement of an approximately 6-acre coastal parcel located in Cape San Blas, in Gulf County, Florida, and has an estimated cost of $3.2 million. The new parcel will be accessible from the existing Salinas Park Bayside parking area, as well as via the adjacent bicycle and pedestrian trail.

Please see factsheet on the Phase V.2 Final Plan and Salinas Park Addition.
