Restricted Area Rulemaking
FWC is charged with the promulgation of Boating Safety Restricted Areas on the waters of the state for the purposes of public safety. In each case, staff consults and coordinates with the governing body of the county or municipality in which the restricted area will be located as well as the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). All of the regulatory markers authorized to post boating restricted areas are adopted pursuant to sections 327.60, 327.40, 327.41 and 327.46, F.S., and must meet the established criteria in Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) Rule Chapters 68D-21 and 68D-23.
