Estimated costs range from about $1 million—for basic shoreline stabilization, improved beach access for the disabled, and some dune and wetland enhancements—to more than $7 million.

The bells-and-whistles plan offered more shoreline stabilization options, including sand placement to help the area weather erosion; a pocket beach near the Bulb; a second access point for the disabled; a boardwalk; and a second picnic area.
