​​​The Coastal Advisory Council (CAC) was created through resolution by the Board of County Commissioners in 1995. The Council’s responsibility is to advise the Board of County Commissioners and staff on projects affecting beach and shoreline preservation regarding the proper methods in helping to conserve the beaches of Lee County.

The CAC consists of 9 regular members and 9 alternate members. Members serve a four-year term. The Council meets periodically throughout the year. The Lee County staff contact for the Council is Steve Boutelle.
