Cameron County Erosion Response Plan

In accordance with state law, Cameron County has elected to prepare an Erosion Response Plan. In general, the purpose of this plan is to explore means and methods to reduce the public expenditures due to damage to property and infrastructure that can result from shoreline change, erosion, and storm conditions.

The Future Development of South Padre Island North of the City of SPI is Expected to Begin Soon. How should the shoreline be used? What can be done to counteract beach erosion and the loss of land? How can public access be assured? What must we do to protect the dune system? Who should pay for future shoreline restoration Projects?

These and many other critical topics will be addressed in the Cameron County Erosion Response Plan and we want your input, help, and participation to make the ERP the best it can be.

Please join the online discussion board at the orange link above or send a private message to the project team.
