THE BLUE PAPER INVESTIGATES:
A public hearing is scheduled for April 17, 2019, ~ 3:00 PM at the Marathon Government Center about the "abandonment" of the east end of Laurel Avenue on Stock Island. Laurel Avenue is a County road that leads into Boca Chica Bay. Laurel Avenue has been used by the public for decades to gain access to the oceanfront. County Code says roads that provide access to land on open water shall not be "abandoned" [closed down to public use and given to adjacent property owners] -- but County staff is recommending that the Board of County Commissioners approve the resolution.
