Many of you are aware of the rapidly eroding shoreline found on the Selby Clubhouse property that is a result of inadequate shoreline protection. The approximate 300 ft shoreline is dominated by consistent boat wake wave action during summer months and by moderate fetch wind generated waves. Tidal storms have also caused extensive damage over the past decade.
You may also be aware of poor drainage issues on the south side of the Community Center that often render the play area and ball fields unusable while also providing breeding grounds for mosquitos and other unwanted pests.
The Selby Community Association Board of Directors has retained the services of a licensed engineer to help with the design, permitting and construction necessary to correct the shoreline erosion and drainage issues found at the clubhouse property. The project consists of two components:
Attached include maps of the project area. A series of groins will be used outside of the swimming area which are designed to slow wave action and trap sand along the shoreline (see maps 2, 3 and 4). To address the drainage issues, fill will be added to the ball fields that will be graded to drain water towards a drainage ditch that will carry water into the Selby Bay (see maps 5 and 6). We are pursuing the appropriate permits and anticipate construction efforts to address the erosion and drainage issues this fall.
