The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is requesting public comment on the proposed anchoring and mooring ordinance for the city of Sarasota, Fla.

Sarasota, along with Stuart/Martin County, Monroe County (Marathon and Key West), St. Augustine and St. Petersburg, was chosen as a site for a legislatively directed anchoring and mooring pilot program.

The goal is to explore potential options for regulating the anchoring or mooring of non-liveaboard vessels outside the boundaries of public mooring fields.

The local government for each participant site is responsible for soliciting public comment for its ordinance development process. Sarasota held public meetings to gather suggestions and information about local problems related to anchoring and mooring.

The public is asked to provide comments through May 16.

The Sarasota ordinance is posted here.
