Amid an uptick in applications for single-family docks and other projects requiring regulatory approvals, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s South District is launching a monthly Learning Lunch outreach program for business owners, employees and engineering and environmental consultants. Building activity ranging from new subdivisions to single-family docks is accelerating across the region, said Terry Cerullo, the district’s ombudsman and community outreach coordinator.
The luncheon meetings, which will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the district’s office at 2295 Victoria Ave. in Fort Myers, will cover topics that include wetlands determinations and permitting, docks in the aquatic preserve, DEP’s Internet resources and application tips. Future luncheons are scheduled for Feb. 18, March 18, April 15 and May 5. Megan Mils, the new environmental administrator for Submerged Lands and Environmental Resources Coordination Program, will host the meetings.
