For purposes of the Federal Shore Protection Project (SPP), Broward County is sub-divided into three management segments. Segment I beaches coincide with the coastal municipalities of Deerfield Beach and Hillsboro Beach, from the north County line to Hillsboro Inlet. Beach management operations along the Segment I coast are run by the respective governing municipalities. Segment II extends from Hillsboro Inlet to Port Everglades, traversing Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Fort Lauderdale. Segment III covers the remaining distance to the south County line, extending across coastal portions of Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, Dania Beach, Hollywood Beach, and Hallandale Beach.
Broward County seeks to implement thoughtful, environmentally sensitive projects, which have been thoroughly vetted by the resource agencies. Prior to conducting any work, proper permits are obtained from the State Department of Environmental Protection and the Army Corps of Engineers to ensure environmental compliance.
