Areas east of I-95 have been declared a primary hurricane evacuation zone.

If you live in a mobile or manufactured home, be prepared to evacuate. These types of homes will not withstand hurricane force winds or wind-blown debris.  

When you evacuate, designate someone who lives away from the path of the hurricane to be your contact person. Keep this contact person apprised of your situation and tell family and friends who your contact person is. Include a phone number and e-mail address.

CAUTION: Be aware that there may be NO fire department or law enforcement services available if a strong hurricane strikes. Choosing to "ride it out" during a hurricane is a major decision that is dangerous and potentially life-threatening, not only for you but for any rescue personnel involved in helping to evacuate you during or after the storm. (Remember Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans!) Be fully prepared by having sufficient food and fresh water for at least a week (including enough for pets). Make sure your vehicle's gas tank is full, as well as having adequate fuel for your generator, if you have one. Check your medications and ensure that you have ten days' to two weeks' supply.

When you evacuate:

  • Do so early
  • Board up or shutter windows and brace garage doors
  • Plan your route
  • Have a place to stay
  • Make hotel reservations early
  • Have valid Florida ID (all family members)
  • Keep a hurricane supply kit ready including family necessities and medications

The Surfside Estates clubhouse is the emergency relief center for our Town. It is the distribution center for food, water, and current information. It IS NOT a shelter and may not be used for overnight stays.

         KNOW YOUR HURRICANE CATEGORIES

Category 1: Winds of 74 mph to 95 mph, 4-5 feet storm surge, and minimal damage

Category 2: Winds from 96 mph to 110 mph, 6-8 feet storm surge, and moderate damage

Category 3: Winds from 111 mph to 130 mph, 9-12 feet storm surge, and extensive damage

Category 4: Winds from 131 mph to 155 mph, 13-18 feet storm surge, and extreme damage

Category 5: Winds greater than 155 mph, 18 feet or higher storm surge, and catastrophic damage

                   PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
 
This program is designed for people who would need assistance, or who depend on medical assistance, and would need special care should there be an emergency evacuation.

The program is coordinated by the Emergency Management Division with the assistance of Emergency Medical Services, Council on Aging and the School Board.

A dedicated PSN (people with special needs) shelter is established when evacuations occur. This facility is staffed by personnel from the Health Dept., EMS, and local physicians, and is stocked with needed supplies.

Pre-registration is key for PSN's. During an emergency is not the time to get on the PSN list. If you would like to receive a registration form for yourself or someone you think needs to be on the PSN registry, please contact our office at (386)313-4200.

You may also email your request to

your mailing address with all communication

                               "PERMITTING 101"

            KNOW THE RULES AND GUIDELINES
                 BEFORE YOU START A PROJECT

The Town Hall tries to keep our citizens informed, involved, and up-to-date on newly passed Ordinances, Resolutions, or other county or state laws that have an impact on how we all conduct our day-to-day business. Still, residents often say they are not aware of certain Code changes or Resolutions passed by the Commission that may be applicable to them, whether it is permitting, requesting a variance hearing, or having what may be classified as a "special event or activity."
Don't be caught in a tricky situation! When in doubt, call the Town Hall or stop by to ask if you need a permit, a variance, or just to confirm that none is needed. This is especially important for any work done that may need approval by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection or the St. John's River Water Management District!
Nearly ALL exterior work needs a building permit, whether it is replacement windows, installation of a new HVAC unit, a new roof, or an addition to an existing structure. Residents of Surfside Estates have additional community guidelines and should check with the office.

There are "setback" restrictions throughout Beverly Beach, and those guidelines are
different for Surfside Estates
. Often, if a homeowner wishes to erect a fence, a variance hearing may be necessary due to the width of the lot and the width of the setback restrictions.

Interior work MAY need a building permit, depending on the scope of the work. Generally, ALL electrical, HVAC, and plumbing work must be permitted. Extensive interior renovations will probably require permitting and inspection.

Any event that is open to the public in which you anticipate attendance in excess of 100 people, OR you will have amplified sound, OR there is a reasonable anticipation of needing traffic control, sanitary facilities, or health and fire inspections will most likely require an Application for a Special Event/Activity which requires an application fee and hearing before the Commission 60 days in advance of the event.

The Town is gradually moving forward and the Town Commission and Mayor are working toward a goal of more effectively abiding by and being guided by our Charter and Code. Again - stay informed and when in doubt, just give us a call or stop by! By being proactive, the Town's daily workings will run smoothly and further enhance this great little piece of the world called Beverly Beach.

Copies of all Ordinances, Resolutions, Planning and Zoning Hearings, and Commission Meetings are available for inspection or copying at the Town Hall during normal working hours. Just ask!
