Land Acquisition and Administration

The provision of needed resources for public outdoor recreation in the state park system depends on the identification, evaluation and establishment of priority projects for the Division of Recreation and Parks’ land acquisition program. Using this priority acquisition list, staff coordinates with the Division of State Lands regarding the initiation of negotiation efforts and the scheduling of real estate transactions performed in the interests of the DRP and to ensure the timely matching of available money with negotiated projects.

Once properties are placed under the management jurisdiction of the DRP, the Office of Park Planning assumes land administration responsibility. This responsibility includes resolving land title or boundary disputes, encroachments, removal or relocation of use rights, and easements and other encumbrances. Exercising these duties allow the Office of Park Planning to protect and improve recreational opportunities for the public directly through support of park operations.

For requests to use state park lands (i.e., subleases, easements, use agreements, managing agency approval letters, etc.), please submit the Supplemental Questionnaire for Land Use Applications form to OPP.Applications@floridadep.gov.
