All three of my children are gifted.
For two decades, officials advocating for beach renourishment argued that the beaches were indispensable to State and local tourism economies and provided the only real protection for people and property threatened by hurricanes and tropical storms. They also knew that the protection would soon be tested.
Structures and adjacent roadways i. A1A dodged extensive damage when waves of cyclonic storm surge were stripped of energy as they crashed against the newly broadened beach reinforced with sand dunes.
If you also noticed that some of our new sand was reclaimed by the ocean, you might recall assurances provided by Broward Beach Administrator Nicole Sharp when she addressed Galt Mile residents attending a December 16, pre-project meeting in the Sonesta Hotel. She may soon realize this opportunity.
A few days before the storm, Sharp dispatched her minions to survey the Broward coast. She plans to follow up the request with a detailed post-storm beach survey supporting the need to restore the Segment II and Segment III beaches to pre-storm conditions.
Anticipating election year chaos, lawmakers voted to schedule the legislative session a few months early. Since the day span will run from January 9 through early March, the pre-session committee weeks began this fall. The fiscal scraps are then distributed according to a skewed ranking system. Although charged with crafting an equitable system for distributing the resources, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection FDEP instead devised the ranking system from hell.
Each year, FDEP hosts an environmental smackdown for applicants in every category. To rank local beach projects for state support, FDEP assigns applicants up to points among 29 criteria. Incredibly, FDEP claimed the beach actually grew.
George Moraitis R-Fort Lauderdale.
I would say the push by local communities to lay out their case, the push by members of the Legislature to make their case. The study also uncovered another flaw in the FDEP ranking system. When calculating the economic impact on candidates for beach renourishment, the FDEP decided to omit the tax revenue they provide to a community and the Statethereby grossly understating the fiscal repercussions of neglecting beaches degraded by tidal erosion.
The study triggered two significant responses. Soliciting support for the proposed legislation, when they distributed copies of the EDR study to their peers, even inland lawmakers who disparage beach funds as coastal pork reversed course, and agreed to support reliable funding for beach and inlet cost-sharing projects.
They kind of define Florida. I mean, who goes to Texas to go to the beach? On April 27,the full Senate unanimously approved Latvala's bill 37 Yeas vs.
After unanimously sailing through two of its three vetting committees, Moraitis' House Bill was throttled on the calendar while awaiting a hearing by the House Government Accountability Committeewhere it died. On October 9, it was unanimously approved in the Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation by 10 Yeas vs.
On October 25, it was unanimously found favorable by 7 Yeas vs. Peters filed companion House Bill on September 1, If House Speaker Richard Corcoran heeds the requests he gets, they will get it done.
Since Nicole Sharp is sitting on long-term Federal and State cost-sharing agreements, this final piece of the puzzle should clear the way for a Segment II hot spot hunt at her discretion, which should make you smile.Archives and past articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and pfmlures.com WE ALLHAVE pfmlures.com grass is chosen for this example in addition to the above explanation is we see next door grass at an angle and hence will not see the empty spots.
