Lakefront Erosion - Informational Public Meeting
If you live on the shores of Lake Erie, it is no secret that persistent wet conditions have resulted in a rapid rise in lake levels this spring. As of mid-May, the daily levels of nearly all of the Great Lakes were above their record high monthly mean levels. The increased intensity and frequency of rainfall combined with higher water levels can wreak havoc on the shoreline, accelerating erosion.
The City of Euclid is hosting an informational meeting for all lakefront property owners on Wednesday, June 12th at 6pm at Euclid City Hall (585 E.222nd Street).
Topics to be covered include: high lake levels, shoreline types, causes and effects of erosion, erosion control solutions, coastal authorizations overview, temporary shore structure permits, available assistance for erosion mitigation.
This meeting is intended for lakefront property owners in Euclid, however it is open to residents from neighboring lakefront communities, all Euclid residents and anyone who may benefit from the discussion which will feature a presentation by Mayor Holzheimer Gail, the City’s current engineering consultant (SmithGroup) and contractor (Haynes Construction) for the Euclid Waterfront Improvement Plan as well as engineer Debi Beck from ODNR’s Coastal Management Office.
Please check the City’s website at www.cityofeuclid.com for updates and additional information.
And, join us for the next public waterfront tour while the project is under construction on Thursday, June 13th. Tours begin at 5:30pm and will last approximately one hour. Tours depart from the parking lot to the east of Henn Mansion in Sims Park (23131 Lakeshore Blvd, Euclid, OH 44123).
