The purpose of the meeting is to present the short-term approach for opening the beach and facilities for this summer season and plans for the future replacement. The Nauset Light Beach has been described by coastal geologists as a current "hot spot" of wave activity. The result has been much more erosion than the previous average of three feet per year.This activity has resulted in eighteen feet of erosion last winter, and even more this past winter.This erosion activity has threatened the current bath house and washed away the stairs for the fourth year in a row. Park staff will review the Nauset Light Beach situation during this information meeting.
