The Marine Council has long supported a balanced approach to Manatee protection. Our position with regards to the Manatee Plan is:
We, the Marine Council of Miami, support the Miami River Commission and Miami River Marine Group's recommendations that include:
a) Support the longstanding and current definition of "existing marine facility." (This
current definition considers those facilities operational on Oct. 28, 1984 or later;
b) Support the ability to transfer slips downstream and upstream on the Miami River;
c) Support extending the fendering exemption by 700 ft. (this item is included in the recent
County staff revision);
d) Support transitory dock permit for pump-out and fuel station (MRMG);
e) Create a manatee protection fund
YOUR SUPPORT OF THIS PROGRAM IS CRITICAL AT THIS TIME! PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT AND EMAIL THOSE MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE LISTED ABOVE WITH YOUR SUPPORT!
We are including below links to the proposed revisions to the Manatee Plan and also the Procedure for "Phase-In" of Implementation of the "existing Facility" definition.
