Lido Beach Renourishment

St. Armands residents have chosen this island for many reasons, not least of which is the proximity to Lido Beach.  Though the beach is obviously on Lido Key and not our own, to St. Armands residents it is the beach that we call home.  Our Association made a financial contribution to the Lido Beach Renourishment efforts being led by the Lido Key Residents Association.

This is scheduled for late 2024 and early 2025, in collaboration with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Rest assured, we are committed to keeping the community informed as we progress with this vital initiative.

Excerpt from email from City Engineer to Lido Key Residents Association:  

Currently, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has submitted the necessary permit to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). Upon its approval, the USACE, in coordination with the City of Sarasota, plans to commence the beach renourishment in the summer of 2025. The sand source will be from the New Pass Federal Channel borrow due to a channel maintenance dredging project.

Additionally, following the renourishment, the City will undertake a dune restoration project to enhance the beach's resilience further.
