BoatU.S. urges comment at St. Augustine meeting

The ability of recreational boats to set anchor in St. Augustine, Fla., waters is being reviewed by city officials, who are asking for comment at a May 26 public meeting.

BoatU.S. is urging area boaters, cruisers and sailors, as well as those who benefit from boater spending, to attend the meeting to have their voices heard.

St. Augustine is one of five cities participating in the state’s mooring and anchoring pilot project and will be allowed to develop an ordinance to limit nearby anchoring.

“We need cruisers as well as those interested in boater spending to attend this meeting to ensure that a reasonable approach is taken and St. Augustine remains a boating-friendly area,” BoatU.S. vice president of government affairs Margaret Podlich said. “In the coming months, the city will be honing its approach to anchoring. As a result, it will be crucial to provide input on impending local anchoring regulations.”
