On January 15, 2016 the South Florida Water Management District (“SFWMD”) issued notice of its intended agency action to approve of the issuance of the Environmental Resource Permit and Sovereignty Submerged Lands (SSL) Easement for the City’s Crosstown Parkway Extension Project – Bridge Crossing of the North Fork of the St. Lucie River (the “Project”). The SFWMD’s permit approval and issuance of a SSL easement are necessary for the City to move forward with construction of the Project. The SFWMD’s decision to issue the environmental resource permit and the SSL easement is an important Project milestone.
A permit challenge and petition for administrative hearing was filed on February 8, 2016. The Department of Administration has scheduled a hearing date of July 12, 2016.
We will continue to keep you updated throughout the process. Please continue to check the
