Community Outreach for the Crystal Beach Drainage and Roadway Improvements Project

UPDATE

Shell streets within the Crystal Beach area have been considered for reconstruction, widening and paving as part of the Crystal Beach Drainage and Roadway Improvements project.

The survey results are now available for your review. Your responses to the mailed survey are greatly appreciated and assisted with the County’s determination for the most desired approach to improving the streets in your community.

The project team is interested in your ideas and concerns. Opportunities for community involvement will be provided throughout the study. Visit this site for up-to-date information about project details, upcoming public meetings and information from past meetings.

Continuous community outreach is integrated into every step of the project to ensure residents and other interested parties have meaningful participation in the process.
