Featured Coastal Zone Management Project
Other Coastal Zone Management Projects
Coastal Tech joined the Florida Beaches Habitat Conservation Plan (FBHCP) Project as lead consultant at the start of the project’s third year (2010) and is now embarking on work for Year 5 of the Project. Development of the FBHCP was initiated for the Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) Program which permits activities on the state’s sandy beaches. During Years 3 and 4, Coastal Tech advanced the FBHCP through analysis of critical issues for the FBHCP Steering Committee, development of chapters (Introduction, Biological Goals & Objections, Covered Activities, Species Accounts, Plan Area, Threats to Covered Species and Alternatives Analysis) and development of four studies designed to characterize the primary activities permitted under the CCCL Program. During Year 5, Coastal Tech will continue drafting chapters that comprise the most complex portions of an HCP, including Assessment of Anticipated Take, Minimization Measures and Mitigation Measures.
