Development District #1
Johnson Bayou • Holly Beach
MINUTES
The Cameron Parish Beachfront Development District #1 Commission met in regular session on Monday, October 8, 2018, at the Johnson Bayou Community Center. The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by President Mark McCombs, who led the pledge and prayer.
Commissioners present were Mark McCombs, Richard Burbank, Terry Burroughs, Lisa Hunt, and Honorary Member James Turner. Commissioner D. J. Fournerat was absent. Guests included Cameron Parish Police Juror Sonny McGee.
On the motion of Richard Burbank, seconded by Terry Burroughs, and carried, the minutes for the September 10, 2018 meeting were approved as presented.
A conversation was held regarding the concrete barriers which are to be placed along Hwy. 82 between Holly Beach and Johnson Bayou where the tides are meeting the road. The barriers are T-bone shaped, 8’ long, and are obsolete for highway use. The Police Jury is working with the state for donation of their barriers for use to protect their State Highway 82. The Police Jury is also pursuing having the state help with transportation and placement of the barriers. The placement of the barriers was discussed. Honorary Member James Turner offered to provide an illustration of how the barriers could best be utilized. On the motion of Richard Burbank, seconded by Terry Burroughs, and carried, it was agreed to ask James Turner to provide the illustration. On the motion of Richard Burbank, seconded by Terry Burroughs, and carried, the concrete barriers agenda item was tabled.
A brief discussion was held regarding the shoreline protection project. Lisa Hunt recounted a discussion with Scooter Trosclair with Rockefeller Refuge. They researched a variety of shoreline stabilization measures and found the best to be a solid line of rock barrier with staggered breaks throughout. They are currently installing approximately 3 miles of barriers at the refuge. He said that beach groins were an option only if there were no better remedies. The beach west of the groins can be scoured. Lisa Hunt had also had a discussion with Ryan Bourriaque, Cameron Parish Administrator, and he reported that the project was in the engineering phase and no further update was available at this time.
Mark McCombs brought a sample of a Beach Rules handout. The Police Jury will assist with the handout and put the information on their website. The handout will be presented to the Police Jury to see if it is approved.
Mark McCombs reported on a big problem with trash being left by visitors at Holly Beach. Currently, non-property owners are not allowed to bring trash to the Holly Beach or Johnson Bayou trash collection stations, although it was noted that that same trash typically is delivered by property owners at the beach who try to keep their beach areas clean. Police Juror Sonny McGee offered to ask for permission from the Cameron Parish Police Jury for beach visitors to bring their trash to the trash collection station(s).
The position of Secretary was discussed. The ordinance creating the Beachfront Development District #1 specifies that “the board of commissioners shall also select one person as secretary-treasurer who shall not be a member of the board but shall be a qualified voter and resident of the district”. In the interim, on the motion of Terry Burroughs, seconded by Richard Burbank, and carried, Lisa Hunt was named as Interim Secretary.
