Weirs Beach Rehabilitation Project Needed

Weirs Beach Rehabilitation Project Needed
June 5, 2024

A project to extend the breakwater jetty at Weirs Beach to prevent erosion and save the sand is badly needed and could be addressed through the use of a grant, bond or tax increment financing dollars.

The Weirs TIF was established about 10 years ago and serves to capture tax dollars from capital improvements and development projects in the area to reinvest those funds in important projects there.

Weirs TIF Chair Robert Ames said at the city council meeting on May 28th that ‘the most important development activity, at the very top of our list, is to restore the public beach at the Weirs.’

The beach was built in the 1950s and has experienced severe erosion since then.
