Collier County plans to renourish 2.5 miles of beach

The city's Park Shore beaches are set to receive thousands of dump truck loads of sand as part of Collier County's $5.2 million beach renourishment project, which could begin as early as next week.

Clam Pass, North Park Shore and Park Shore Beach will receive a combined total of 165,000 tons of sand. The sand, brought in from the Stewart Mine in Immokalee, will be spread over 2.5 miles of shoreline.

Collier County commissioner Penny Taylor — whose district includes the city of Naples — County Manager Leo Ochs and Gary McAlpin, manager of the county’s Coastal Zone Management, attended Wednesday's Naples City Council meeting to present the project to the council members.
