Avalon and Stone Harbor Weekly Update January 19th, 2017

BEACH REPLENISHMENT WORK will begin soon in Avalon and Stone Harbor, with mobilization of equipment to begin in two weeks, and pumping to follow.  Work will begin in Stone Harbor at 123rd Street and is expected to take approximately four weeks to complete as sand pumping progresses northward.  After that,  work will move to Avalon’s 9th Street beach and progress southward for approximately four weeks.  The dredge “Texas” can pump about 50,000 cubic yards of sand per day if weather conditions are favorable, and the project is expected to conclude well in advance of the summer season.

THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT?  Yes!  Avalon will soon launch an app allowing beachgoers to purchase beach tags via their smartphones.  Stay tuned for more details!

A full moon hovers over Avalon’s fishing pier.  Winter is just as beautiful as summer here on the Island!

BAYFRONT DREDGING CONTINUES in Stone Harbor.  The relative quiet of the bay on winter days is punctuated by the sound of machinery, as silt is dredged from the channels and transported off site.  Earlier this week the dredge and barges were stationed off the western side of Golden Gate Drive.

AVALON COMMUNITY HALL reopened Monday after the wood floor was sanded and refinished.  A new logo and striping were added to the floor as part of the refinishing.

SLACK TIDE BREWING COMPANY is celebrating its one-year anniversary this month, having produced more than three dozen different beers since opening.  Slack Tide favorites include Five Fathom, Bell Buoy, and Angry Osprey, as well as several others.  Visit them online at or visit them in person at their Clermont location the next time you’re in the area!

57 PROPERTIES ARE UNDER CONTRACT in the local market—meaning 57 families are looking forward to great seashore memories during the 2017 season!  Why not become one of them?  If you’re ready to begin your search for the perfect seashore property, call or email me today to get started!
