How were the required access areas determined?

After extensive engineering studies, cost benefit analyses and consultation with numerous regulatory agencies to assure the desired level of protection, a beach and dune template (location, height and width of sand placement) has been developed and approved for the FIMP Project. Because the beach and dunes must be built to this specific design template, sand must be placed on certain private ocean-front properties.
