The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is looking to get feedback from residents of St. Johns County as it prepares to conduct a study looking at coastal storm damages and risks along the shores of Ponte Vedra Beach.

The Army Corps and St. Johns County have a cost-sharing agreement that gives the Corps the authority to evaluate “coastal storm risk management opportunities” over the next 50 years.

A first step in its upcoming study, the Corps will host two online public presentations on Thursday, July 15.

The presentations will run from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Detailed directions for logging in and participating in the online presentations will be published in the next few days on the Jacksonville Army Corps District’s website and on Facebook and Twitter.

The public meetings are an opportunity to discuss the project study area and answer any questions members of the community may have. There will also be time for public comments.
