Florida Mooring and Anchoring Pilot Program Survey

This email was sent out today seeking cruisers input on the Florida Mooring and Anchoring Pilot program...

In 2009, the Florida Legislature enacted a temporary pilot program to explore potential options for regulating the anchoring or mooring of non-live-aboard vessels outside the marked boundaries of public mooring fields. The City of St. Augustine, the City of St. Petersburg, the City of Sarasota, the City of Stuart in conjunction with Martin County, and the cities of Key West and Marathon in conjunction with Monroe County were granted temporary authority to regulate mooring in their jurisdictional waters through local ordinance. All ordinances enacted under authority of the pilot program will expire on July 1, 2014 and will be inoperative and unenforceable thereafter, unless reenacted by the Legislature. You, your partners, and interested members have the opportunity to provide valuable input on the Anchoring and Mooring Pilot Program. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is seeking help from cruising boaters, local boaters, and residents in evaluating the effectiveness and fairness of the temporary ordinances and the pilot program.
FWC has created and posted a survey at Anchoring and Mooring Pilot Program which should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. The Survey will be available from September 18th until October 7th, 2013. Your prompt participation would be appreciated. There is also a survey link on our Boating and Waterways webpage at Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission - Boating in Florida.
Thank you for your time and effort.
Captain Tom Shipp,
FWC / DLE / Boating and Waterways

I just responded to the survey. LESS MOORING FIELDS, more anchoring!
