“The city is moving forward on a long-awaited sand replenishment project for Chic’s Beach, starting with collecting “public beach” releases from the neighborhood’s waterfront property owners.”

The release states that a property owner agrees the portion of the land between the dune or the bulkhead line and the water is a public beach. The owner gives the city permission to dump sand on it and agrees not to impede public access.

City officials met with Chic’s Beach residents about the project and the release form last month. They’ll need consent from the owners of roughly 140 properties stretching about a mile from Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek to Joyce Avenue.
