The Florida Shore and Beach Preservation Association awarded the Local Government Award to the Town Commission and Town Manager Bruce St. Denis for 2010 Sept. 23 at the Hyatt Regency Resort in Clearwater Beach.
The award was presented to the Longboat Key Town Commission and Town Manager Bruce St. Denis during the 54th annual Florida Shore and Beach Preservation Association Conference held Sept. 22-24.
The award was based on Longboat Key’s current and historical efforts regarding sustainable beaches.
In announcing the award, the association stated: “The town has long acknowledged that sustaining our island’s beach is important for many reasons, including aesthetic beauty, recreational opportunities, storm protection, and support of property values. For those reasons, among others, the commission has consistently established Longboat Key beach management a top priority.”
Coastal Planning & Engineering Longboat Key Beach Project Manager Doug Mann nominated the town for the award.
