  • Description:
    "The Southeast Florida Coral Reef Initiative (SEFCRI) Maritime Industry and Coastal Construction Impacts (MICCI) Combined Project 4, 21, 23, and 24 examined current local, state, and federal compliance and enforcement (C & E) issues relating to coastal construction permits for projects impacting coral reef and hardbottom resources. This project was completed in two separate Phases. Phase 1 included data mining of permit special conditions of local coastal construction project permits, interviews with field level enforcement staff to determine the perceived enforceability of those conditions, any overall views on how to increase compliance and enforcement within their respective agencies, and any lessons learned. The final Phase 1 report included overall lessons learned from the interviews with enforcement staff (e.g., potential ways to increase enforcement effectiveness, etc.) and recommendations regarding standardized permit special conditions...Phase 2, the present report, built on the work of Phase 1 by conducting an in-depth analysis of legal and regulatory issues that arose during Phase 1. Phase 2 also included interviews with mid- and high-level agency personnel to share the results of better understand C & E constraints, to seek methods to address identified constraints, Phase 1, to and to seek avenues for better processes to leverage the scarcity of financial and human resources affecting all agencies involved. The Phase 2 final report summarizes all project findings includes suggestions and conclusions at the following scales: 1) overview of summary comments, and 2) points relevant to individual agencies or multiagency summaries. Phase 2 also developed an array of awareness training materials for agency staff contained within separately available Powerpoint files (totaling over 170 slides within three units) and information cards for field use"--Executive summary.
