    Could SOMEONE go look at Beach Access 27~~thru~~30)? Most of the high dune is GONE. It would be really nice to have some attentions paid to this part of the beach vs. same old same old.

    Robert, I would suggest you contact Erik Olsen of Olsen Associates ((904) 387-6114) and relay your concerns. Eric is the consultant that oversees the beach renourishment projects on Amelia Island. My understanding is that there is a geographical limit to the beach renourishment area due to the amount of sand being dredged as well as the studies showing where the impact of the erosion as a result of the St. Mary’s River jetty, but Erik can give you the full story.
