Cameron Parish Beachfront
Development District #1
Johnson Bayou • Holly Beach
MINUTES
The Cameron Parish Beachfront Development District #1 Commission met in regular session on Monday, September 9, 2019, at the Johnson Bayou Community Center. The meeting was called to order at 6:00 pm by Vice-Chairman Richard Burbank, who led the pledge and prayer.
Commissioners present were Mark McCombs, Richard Burbank, Terry Burroughs, JoElla Bott, Secretary Michele Long and Honorary Member James Turner. Guests included Rica Canik and Sonny McGee with the Cameron Parish Police Jury and Nathan Haase with Bechtel.
On the motion of Terry Burroughs, seconded by JoElla Bott, and carried, the minutes for the August 12, 2019, meeting were approved as presented.
The placement of trash dumpsters at Holly Beach, Little Florida Beach and Mae’s Beach for Labor Day weekend was discussed. JoElla Bott reported that the five dumpsters at the Holly Beach entrances worked well, but not the one leading out of the beach. Terry Burroughs reported that the dumpsters at Little Florida Beach and Mae’s Beach were beneficial as well.
Regarding the update on remedies for the exposed pipeline and increased scouring at Little Florida Beach, Michele Long provided an email from Jeremy W. Smith with Energy Transfer. He expects C.H. Fenstermaker and Associates “to be onsite in the coming weeks to perform a survey from the State road out into the water to a suitable depth. Understanding the bottom profile and the pipes orientation to it will be the first step in Fenstermaker and Energy Transfer being able to determine and design a solution. Once the design is complete [they] will move to permitting and ultimately implementation once all government entities have approved. [Their] goal is to reestablish cover on [their] pipeline while not causing any issues elsewhere in doing so.” Terry Burroughs added that he is hopeful because the engineering company and the pipeline company are working together to come up with a solution we can all live with.
The concrete barriers at mile marker 22 and possible expansion of the project was discussed. Mark McCombs stated that the first attempt was completed by the state (permit, equipment, and setting), but any further work will be the responsibility of the parish. Therefore, the process will start over from square one. Emily Mock will talk to the state to see if the parish can still have access to the concrete barriers like the ones already placed. James Turner added that Jerome Carter with DOTD is retiring. James will get in contact with the new representative and set up a meeting to discuss the project. Sonny McGee stated that the parish needs to know the weight of each barrier to know what type of machinery would be needed in case they would ever need to be moved.
JoElla Bott gave an update on the dumpsters that were placed at the Sabine Pass and Cameron Ferry boat launches on Thursday, September 5, 2019. A dumpster could not be placed at Deep Bayou Road because it is private property. It will be a three-month trial period and dumped once a week. Also, both locations will be added to the Beach Sweep on September 21, 2019, to be cleaned.
James Turner reported on the proposed areas for beach grass plantings on September 28 by the CRCL. James Turner, Dick Burbank, and Rica Canik met with the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana one mile east of Holly Beach, where the high tides and tropical storms have broken through. Andrea Gorum SWCD will provide about 6000 plants. Volunteers must sign up on the CRCL website in order to participate.
The Board agreed to place 25 signs on the beaches warning of the potential danger of rip currents. Graphics Works supplied the design, and the board approved the invoice for $3,348.75. The Cameron Roads and Bridges crew will install the signs. On the motion of Joella Bott, seconded by Terry Burroughs, and carried, the signs will be ordered. One of the board members will ride with the road crew to show where placement should be.
Mark McCombs discussed appointing a sub-committee to assist the Board in creating a long-range master plan for the Beachfront Development District 1 with the goal of getting more projects done in a timely manner. JoElla Bott reported that people with whom she has spoken would like to see a handicapped accessible fishing pier and public bathrooms constructed on the beaches. Rica Canik advised that she would need to visit with state officials to see what can be done on state property. Sonny McGee noted that pavilions, restrooms and showers are needed on the beaches. On the motion of JoElla Bott, seconded by Terry Burroughs, and carried, Sonny McGee, Sherry Seat, Rica Canik, JoElla Bott, Terry Burroughs, and James Turner will be honorary committee members to work on the long-range planning sub-committee.
Terry Burroughs reported on the removal of 4”x4” posts left from previous sand fencing projects on Gulf Breeze and Constance Beaches. Some of the posts need to be removed because they are broken and can be hazardous to beach goers, but others are beneficial, allowing grasses to form behind them and deterring people from driving near the dunes. On the motion of Terry Burroughs, seconded by JoElla Bott, and carried, the removal of the posts will be tabled to next month’s meeting in order to decide which posts need removal.
World Conservation Day and National Beach Sweep is September 21, 2019. Terry Burroughs reported that Lyondell Basell is volunteering to clean as well as plant grasses at Little Florida Beach. Nathan Haase reported that Bechtel will have approximately 40 volunteers working primarily at Mae’s Beach and Sabine Pass Boat Launch.
JoElla Bott reported that following items were approved at the last Police Jury Meeting. A stop sign has been installed on the corner of Pintail and Teal. Also the existing port-o-lets will be serviced two times per week during non-holiday months and three times per week between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
There being no further business, on the motion of Richard Burbank, seconded by JoElla Bott, and carried the meeting was adjourned at 6:42 p.m.
