Beach Restrooms Project Phase 1 - Construction continues on the first phase of a multi-phase improvement project along the waterfront. The first beach restrooms are under construction which are located along The Strand at Breakwater and Sportfisher. It is anticipated the restrooms on the Oceanside Pier and at Wisconsin Street will start the remodeling process late April 2015.  All project sites are scheduled to be completed early July 2015.

Beach Restroom and Operations Facility Project - The next phase of restroom projects will address the much-needed improvements to beach operations and visitor-serving facilities adjacent to the Junior Seau Amphitheater and Tyson Street Park. This project has just started the conceptual design process. The second community meeting was held March 25.  Additional information about this potential project is located on the City website under Development Services Department here.  Future meetings will be advertised on the City’s calendar of events, Facebook, Twitter and site-specific signage.
