There will be a public meeting for information and public comment on Florida’s Early Restoration Projects Thursday, January 12 at the UWF Conference Center (1100 University Pkwy, Pensacola, FL 32514). Open house starts at 6 PM. Meeting and Comments session begins at 7 PM.

The meeting will give the state Department of Environmental Regulation (DEP) and federal agencies an indication of the importance to our community of marine restoration projects. This is a great opportunity to provide your support for reefing project funding in our area from the BP Oil Spill funds being allocated by the state of Florida.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has issued the General Permits required for all three reef sites  (two in the sound and one in the gulf) of the marine sanctuary.  This is  a major step forward and gives us  three of the six permits required.    In addition to this good news,  we believe the other three required  permits that issued by the Army Corps of Engineers, will be going out to public notice for comment within days.  This is fantastic progress and even keeps us ahead of schedule.
