Abstract: This appendix outlines cost sharing for the Recommended Plan as determined by shoreline ownership and use. The plan spans from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (FDEP) reference monuments R98.5 to R115 + 1000 feet, to the Martin County line (approximately R001) and consists of initial and periodic nourishments of the existing dune profile and an additional 20‐foot berm extension. The current cost share estimates are based on policy guidance provided by Engineer Regulations (ER) 1105‐2‐100, Appendix E and ER 1165‐2‐130. The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 1999 changed the cost sharing policy, previously provided by WRDA 1986, by setting a federal share of periodic nourishment, carried out after 1 January 2003, to 50% for projects authorized for construction after 31 December 1999. Therefore, costs assigned to developed lands (publicly or privately owned) are cost shared 65% federal and 35% non‐federal for initial construction and 50% federal / 50% non‐federal for periodic nourishment. Benefits from prevention of damages to transportation facilities are considered storm damage reduction benefits according to ER 1165‐2‐130 and are cost shared 65% federal and 35% non‐federal for initial construction. “Transportation facilities” in the project area include street ends. Costs assigned to undeveloped, publicly owned lands are cost shared 65% federal and 35% non‐federal. Costs assigned to undeveloped, privately owned lands, even publicly accessible, are not federally cost shared (100% non‐federal). Note that, for the purposes of this report, “developed” indicates the presence of buildings and/or other infrastructure such as roadways. Parks, parking lots, and vacant lots are not considered to be “developed” lands. If lands are not within ¼ mile north or ¼ mile south of public access and public parking, then the associated costs will be 100% non‐federal. The cost sharing for the project is determined to be 35% federal, 65% non‐federal for initial construction. Table 1 shows the cost sharing estimates for initial construction and subsequent periodic nourishments.
