New Living Shoreline at Franklin Point State Park

Yesterday I was happy to attend the BPW meeting and support the approval of a living shoreline at Franklin Point State Park. The measure was voted on and unanimously approved.

This request will provide a $1,461,717.54 grant from DNR from the Resiliency through Restoration Initiative to Arundel Rivers Foundation to construct a 1,060 linear foot living shoreline with breakwater and sill features along the Chesapeake Bay at Franklin Point State Park to enhance natural buffers and stabilize the existing peninsula.

This project will protect existing green infrastructure, buffer adjacent residential infrastructure, and provide water quality and habitat co-benefits. This Initiative was developed to address escalating risks to Maryland communities and public resources from extreme weather and climate-related events.
