The purpose of the meeting is to present the short-term approach for opening the beach and facilities for the summer season and plans for the future replacement.

The beach has been described by coastal geologists as a current hot spot of wave activity and there has been more erosion then the previous average of three feet a year.

There was 18 feet of erosion in the winter of 2014 and even more this past winter, according to Seashore staff.

The erosion activity has threatened the current bath house and washed away the stairs for the fourth year in a row.

Park staff will review the situation at the site during the information meeting, which will run from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
