   CLICK HERE posted October 15, 2019
The SSKBRN project was funded as a Municipal Service Benefit Unit (MSBU) and this document is the analysis requested  “to study the costs of the beach renourishment project in relation to the project benefits that would accrue to the property owners and to the public. Those benefits include recreational benefits, storm protection, and the effect on real estate values. “
Concluding remarks include:
“In addition and to answer the MSBU test, I have concluded, based on this study, that the proposed project will preserve and enhance the market values of the properties that are part of this project by more than the cost assessed to each of the specific property owners.”
