“ASBPA created the Best Restored Beach award as a way of highlighting the value of America’s restored beaches,” said Tony Pratt, ASBPA president and administrator of the Shoreline and Waterway Management Section within the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. “As Americans flock to our coastline during the upcoming beach season, most don’t even realize they may be enjoying a restored beach.”
Seabrook Island property owners and visitors love the beach for strolls, walking their dogs, and enjoying the surf. In May 2015, for the third time in the past 30 years, Seabrook Island, in cooperation with federal, state, and local authorities and with Seabrook Island property owner funding, relocated Cap’n Sam’s Creek using scientific island inlet relocation methodology.
“In 2016, Seabrook Island Property Owners Association was awarded the Blue Ribbon Community Award from the SC Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI). In receiving the award, SIPOA was recognized for outstanding standards, records and fiscal management, architectural guidelines and community participation.” – Town of Seabrook Island
