Rules and Procedures for Coastal Construction and Excavation
The Department of Environmental Protection proposes amendments to Chapter 62B-33, F.A.C., Rules and Procedures for Coastal Construction and Excavation. The proposed amendment includes changes to the definitions of “eligible” and “vulnerable” to clarify that in order to qualify for coastal armoring, the eligible private structure to be protected must be located wholly or partially seaward of the applicable Coastal Construction Control Line, and to clarify the models used by the Department to establish vulnerability.
The Department of Environmental Protection proposes amendments to Chapter 62B-36, F.A.C. as result of changes made to the beaches funding program in 2019, as codified in Chapter 2019-11, Law of Florida. These amendments revise the criteria that the Department must consider in determining and assigning annual funding priorities for beach management and erosion control projects and revising certain statutory provisions that the Department must consider with respect to managing inlets.
