HONEYSUCKLE BEACH & BOAT LAUNCH STUDY
YOUR INPUT MATTERS
The City of Hayden is starting a public engagement process to identify solutions for the Honeysuckle Beach and boat ramp challenges regarding the number of users, types of users and functionality for pedestrians, vehicles and boats.
The City understands that Honeysuckle is a long-time popular summer attraction and a cherished amenity for many residents, from people fishing to kids a summer camp to families on the beach. The engagement process will include one-on-one interviews, a public survey, stakeholder working group and public open house, as well as as ongoing updates through Facebook and this web page.
THE GOALS OF THIS PROCESS INCLUDE:
After many years of challenges, as well as heightened use of Honeysuckle Beach in recent years, the City will be implementing immediate, yet interim changes to support the 2021 season. Starting Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, 2021, trailer parking will be available in the existing nine spaces on the west edge. The nine central trailer spaces will be converted to 18 standard spaces to almost double the parking capacity.
“Maximizing parking is our immediate goal,” said Mayor Steve Griffitts. “By creating more availability closer to the beach, we hope to enhance pedestrian safety for the 2021 season.”
Additional parking will remain on the south side of Honeysuckle Avenue.
Your involvement will help shape a future for Honeysuckle that reflects the community's vision. We look forward to hearing your thoughts!
