The St. Augustine Municipal Marina was designated the second Clean and Resilient Marinain Florida and is the first municipal marina in the region to earn the designation.

“The city of St. Augustine is America’s first city and is home to our nation’s oldest port. For 450 years our coastal waterways have provided the foundation of our city’s existence and sustainability,” harbormaster Sam R. Adukiewicz told Historic News. “Because of our rich history we are proud and honored to be the first municipal marina in the state of Florida to receive the Clean and Resilient Marina designation.”

Florida’s Clean and Resilient Marina Initiativerecognizes marinas that have demonstrated their commitment, not only to environmental stewardship through implementing best management practices at their facility, but also have taken a step beyond to implement practices that achieve an additional level of resiliency, sustainability and environmental responsibility.

The Clean and Resilient Marina Initiative is a Gulf of Mexico Alliance project born from the Coastal Community Resilience Team and is part of the governors’action plan.

The multistate partnership includes Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Its goal is to significantly increase regional collaboration to enhance the ecological and economic health of the Gulf.
