The Central Beach area encompasses the area south of Flagler Avenue bounded by Atlantic Avenue on the east, Second Avenue on the south, and the Indian River on the west, according to Khalid Resheidat, New Smyrna Beach assistant city manager.
City of New Smyrna Beach staff and consultants will present plans that have been updated after addressing comments and suggestions received at two public meetings in May 2013. An estimated construction schedule and costs also will be discussed, Resheidat said.
“This is the final phase of a three-phase project to reduce stormwater flooding in the Central Beach area,” Resheidat said. “When it’s completed, residents immediately will notice an improvement especially during heavy rain storms.”
Residents may be inconvenienced at times during the two-year project as underground stormwater systems are installed, Resheidat added. Inconveniences may include road closures and detours. However, when completed, heavy rainfall no longer will flood the neighborhoods.
The Central Beach Flood Mitigation Project is the result of flooding during a November, 2001 tropical storm. The area received 12 inches of rainfall in 36 hours, Resheidat said.
The estimated total cost to date of this final phase of the project is $7.4 million. Nearly $5 million of the cost will be covered by a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant from the Department of Community Affairs, which includes a 25-percent match from the City. The remainder will be funded by the City’s stormwater mitigation fund, Resheidat said.
The parade will travel from S. Atlantic onto Flagler Avenue and turn south on Pine Street and end at Jessamine Avenue.
