Beach Replenishment Is A Hot Potato!

April 2nd, 2011

As budgets for state and local municipalities become tighter and tighter, replenishing the sand on our famous beaches is becoming a political hot potato. For years, residents and the public have depended on state funding to pump or truck the sand back to the beach. This was not as easy as it might seem.

Although a 5-year-old could tell you where the beach is, apparently the state and county can’t agree, so underwater surveyors are brought in, hired by marine contractors from Utah, to determine where the sand is supposed to go. Wearing wetsuits, they secure survey markers in the surf line so that no sand goes where it is not supposed to be. The state only gets their sand and the county only gets theirs.

Other methods have been tried to eliminate the natural sand movement, called littoral action or longshore drift. In Jupiter, condo dwellers are considering spending their own money to truck in sand before their stairs to the beach collapse into the breaking waves.

Further south on Singer Island, residents have been trying for 15 years to get the County to install breakwaters in front of the beach to slow down big waves before they can carry the sand off.  The concept was projected to cost from $20 to $30 million for 1.18 miles of breakwaters, but last week the County killed the idea along with similar ones on Palm Beach, off Lantana, and in Jupiter, much to the delight of environmentalists and surfers.

Up on Jupiter Island where money is not an issue, the Town has included funding for this in the taxing structure, so they are taking bids to pump 1.2 million cubic feet of sand onto the beaches starting in November and continuing until May. As costly as real estate is on Jupiter Island, this will be very valuable sand.

Juno Beach Oceanfront Living | Juno Homes For Sale

January 16th, 2011

Juno Beach is a quiet pocket of homes and condos situated along the Atlantic Ocean where the city meets the beach. Located south of Jupiter and north of North Palm Beach, Juno Beach is also the buffer between Palm Beach Gardens and the ocean.

What lifestyles are available in Juno Beach?

Single family homes are available in Juno Isles. This small collection of homes sits between US1 and Ellison Wilson Road and the oversize lots are on the waterfront if you so desire.  Waterfront homes in Juno Isles have ocean access via a community boat lift that will lift your personal boat over a salinity dam so you can continue to the Intracoastal Waterway and from there access the ocean either through the Jupiter Inlet or the Lake Worth Inlet. These homes are classic Florida, ranch-style homes with single-story floorplans.

Also in this area are a couple of condominium developments like Oak Harbour, named for the large live oaks which populate the area and located between US1 and Ellison Wilson Road. North of Oak Harbour, a few streets wind down the hill away from Ellison Wilson Road to the Intracoastal where the older homes are giving way to new waterfront estates. At the southern end of Ellison Wilson where Juno Beach meets Palm Beach Gardens and North Palm Beach are waterfront restaurants like Seasons 52 and Panama Hattie’s. Across the water are The River House and The Waterway Café.

But the main attraction in Juno Beach is the oceanfront living in condos along the ocean. These buildings sit directly on the ocean, and except for Singer Island, these buildings are the only ones right on the ocean until you reach Ocean Trail on the Jupiter Inlet to the north. Many of the condos in Juno Beach were built in the 1970’s and building continued right up through the 1990’s. Almost all price points and building styles are represented here, but they all share one thing, they look right out to sea and over some of the widest beaches in the area. The Loggerhead Marine Life Center is located in Juno Beach and monthly volunteers scour the beach for debris so the beach is very clean.

If you love walking the beach at dawn and are looking for a condo right on the ocean in a quiet town, Juno Beach is the place to start. Juno Beach Oceanfront Living is where the fun is!
