Charlie Crist: Army Corps of Engineers, Pinellas County Need to Work Together on Shore...

According to the congressman’s office, Crist asked the Corps to “provide flexibility to Pinellas County and maintain their commitment to work hand-in-hand with the county to replenish and preserve our coast” since the “Shore Protection Project, which serves to periodically renourish nearly 13 miles of Pinellas beaches, hit a major roadblock after the county was told by the Army Corps that they only have until the end of the year to secure hundreds of easements from property owners in order to continue the project.”
