Meeting set on Florida anchoring ordinance

The city of St. Petersburg, Fla., is hosting a meeting Tuesday to discuss proposed anchoring restrictions for city waters, and BoatUS is urging boaters, cruisers and those who benefit from the economic impact of boater spending to attend this meeting to have their concerns heard.

The city is one of five municipalities in the state’s mooring and anchoring pilot project, which allows it to develop an ordinance to limit nearby anchoring.

“The city hasn’t published any specific proposals to date, so that’s why boaters need to attend,” BoatUS president Margaret Podlich said in a statement. “We need to ensure that a reasonable approach is taken and St. Petersburg remains a boating-friendly area.”

Attendees are asked to RSVP by calling the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina at (727) 893-7329 or e-mail marina@stpete.org.
