FWC to hold local workshop on boating safety zones

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has scheduled workshops to address possible changes to the boating safety zones affecting vessel speed during flood conditions in the Santa Fe and lower Suwannee rivers.

The FWC is considering revisions within the portion of the Suwannee from County Road 340, going south to Fowler’s Bluff, and also the Santa Fe, beginning at River Rise and going downstream to the confluence of the Suwannee.

The workshop to discuss possible changes within the Suwannee will be Tuesday, April 28, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Suwannee River Fair building, located at 17851 NW 90th Ave., Fanning Springs.

The workshop to discuss possible changes within the Santa Fe will be Wednesday, April 29, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at O’Leno State Park, located at 410 SE O’Leno Park Road, High Springs.

Possible changes pertain to the Rule 68D-24.020, Florida Administrative Code. To obtain copies of the meeting agenda, visit MyFWC.com/Boating and look up “Workshops” under the heading “Waterway Management.” Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
