This week, U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., toured Casey Key’s coastal restoration site and reviewed their shoreline resilience project.

“Especially as we approach another hurricane season, Casey Key’s restoration efforts will be critical in achieving long-term coastal resilience in Sarasota County,” Steube said. “These coastal resilience efforts will serve our environmental and economic interests for decades to come, and our team is committed to working with all of our federal, state and local partners to help advance these efforts.”
