The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers once again has delayed the release of the models and reports related to its proposed dredg- ing of Big Sarasota Pass for the Lido Beach Renourishment Project, The Sarasota News Leader has learned. The latest schedule calls for the material to be available for public review by the end of April, Susan J. Jackson, a public information officer for the Corps in its Jacksonville office, told the News Leader on Feb. 26. Jackson was responding to a News Leader query about whether the material would be available by the end of this week, as she had told this reporter in January. In her Feb. 26 email, Jackson wrote, "The report is still under Corps peer review." A graphic shows the areas where the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has proposed dredging in Big Pass.
