The lot is 337 feet by 55 feet and the proposed seawall will be 337 feet long along the water with 18-foot long returns on each side terminating into the land. Seawall construction will require excavation of 80 CY and the placement of 200 cubic yards (CY) of concrete. A total of 1,250 CY of shot rock will be placed behind the seawall for the building pad. The bottom of the seawall will be constructed at the mean high water (MHW) line at 14.5 feet and the top of the wall be at 23-feet in elevation. A house, garage, parking, and on-site wastewater system with drain field will be constructed on the building pad.
