Emergency Beach Erosion Control Project
Pinellas County is conducting an emergency shoreline restoration project to mitigate critical erosion caused by Hurricane Idalia. The project consists of constructing dunes. The active project area will move strategically along the coast, as County teams have triaged the damage and will work on the most critical areas first. Redington Beach is eligible for inclusion in the project. Beachfront property owners must complete and submit temporary easements provided by the County.
This project is separate from the federal beach nourishment project that is currently on hold with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
Sand is being trucked in from an authorized location, placed on the beach and shaped into dunes. The new dunes will also be planted with vegetation. Several other beaches between Clearwater and Pass-a-Grille are tentatively included in the project. A map and schedule will be posted here once finalized.
More details about the project scope can be found on the County’s website BY CLICKING HERE.
Pinellas residents can now apply for FEMA Individual Assistance
FEMA Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams will go door-to-door in impacted areas starting Monday
The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced today that Pinellas County has been added to Florida’s Major Disaster Declaration, which makes our community eligible for federal assistance, including Individual Assistance.
Those impacted by Hurricane Idalia can visit disasterassistance.gov, download the FEMA app or call the FEMA Helpline at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). Residents who use TTY may call 1-800-462-7585. Disaster survivors who use 711 or VRS (Video Relay Service) may also call 800-621-3362. Lines are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. local time, seven days a week. Information you share will be used to determine our needs for federal assistance here in Pinellas.
Disaster assistance may include financial help for temporary lodging, basic home repairs and other disaster-caused expenses.
If you don’t see Pinellas listed on the website among eligible counties under the Disaster Declaration, proceed with completing the online application and you will be contacted. The Disaster Assistance website is currently being updated to reflect the inclusion of Pinellas County.
FEMA Disaster Survivor Assistance teams will begin meeting with homeowners, renters and businesses that were impacted by Hurricane Idalia in Pinellas County on Monday, Sept. 4, 2023. They will go door to door in the affected areas. They will be wearing an official FEMA shirt or vest and have an ID badge displayed above their belt line. They can help people register for FEMA Individual Assistance or update any information for people who have already registered.
STORM DAMAGE REPAIRS AND PERMITTING
Our building permit office is prepared to expedite storm damage permitting related to Idalia. There is no additional charge for this expedited process.

- Set fans to dry out the area.

- When you submit your permit, please email me at [email protected] so that I can pull your application into my queue for immediate review, again using the subject line IDALIA WATER DAMAGE PERMIT.
- All water damage repairs and materials are subject to the FEMA 50% limitation on improvements and repairs.
- If you received extensive water damage, please contact me at [email protected] or 727-263-8366 to go over the FEMA restrictions.

There will be a second dumpster delivered to the Causeway, in addition to the one at Town Park. Please feel free to utilize this for household items that did not survive the flooding – carpets, cabinets, furniture, etc. Yard waste can be left at curbside for pick up. Regular trash will continue to be removed as usual.
Now that the storm has passed and flood waters have receded, take a moment to formulate a plan for how to best start the clean up process. Not everyone experienced the same degree of flood damage so not everyone will need the same degree of clean up. Check on your elderly neighbors!
