In 2019, the City received $4.4M in Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) funding from ADNR for the acquisition and protection of 53 undeveloped acres of property located on the south shore of Little Lagoon near the west end of W. Beach Blvd. The City has acquired the property and is currently planning the habitat restoration work and the design of limited, passive recreational access facilities.
- To conserve and restore natural resources and provide limited outdoor recreation opportunities.
- The property has 6100 feet of shoreline on Little Lagoon, and significant areas of critical wetlands and dune habitats.
- These areas will be protected and restored in coordination with State and Federal agencies as part of the implementation plan with ADCNR.
- Passive recreational uses will include birding, kayaking, nature trails, wetland boardwalks, and interpretive educational areas.
