Barrier Island Reentry Program
Effective with the 2019 Hurricane Season, residents and property owners of both North and South Hutchinson Island will no longer need a Barrier Island Re-Entry Placard following evacuation for a hurricane. Once a storm has passed and county officials determine it is safe to access the barrier islands, residents and/or homeowners will be required to stop at the check-point and present two documents to justify their access. These documents include a utility bill, insurance declaration or property tax statement along with a government-issued photo identification.
