Cape Coral Ends Construction Delays

News-PressBuilding industry cheers Cape Coral council

Cape Coral has ended delays to construction caused by the endangered smalltooth sawfish.

The City Council unanimously approved a resolution Monday that updated an agreement between the city and the Army Corps of Engineers.

It once again gave the city the authority to approve Army Corps construction permits and expedited the process with some new restrictions.

The projects affected homes being built on the water. Seawalls, docks and boatlift construction was temporarily halted due to the endangered fish found in local waters.

A study of the sawfish’s habitat as well as other marine life conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service caused the Army Corps to review the city’s permits which were expiring.

Building PermitsThe agreement lasped in October that allowed the city to issue construction permits on behalf of the corps. Since then, permit applications had to go through the corps, which increased potential waits to an estimated 3 to 18 months from the previous 24 to 48 hours.

“This gives the city and any resident five years of stable permitting,” said Mike Ilczyszyn, city business manager.

Part of the new solution includes a 10-day consideration period in which NOAA Fisheries could comment on permit applications, said Tunis McElwain, with the Army Corps of Engineers’ Fort Myers Regulatory Office. If the application meets the terms and conditions of the permit, it will get approved.

He called it a type of one-stop shop for permits and a more efficient way to operate.

“It is about jobs in our city,” said Councilman Kevin McGrail.

Members of the construction industry praised the collaboration as well as elected officials who supported the efforts.

“Thank you to city staff,” said Heather Mazurkiewicz, executive vice-president of the Building Industry Association. “You’ve been proactive. When the rug was pulled out from underneath…you came out ready to take on the issue.”

RV parks

Also addressed and approved this evening was an ordinance that established a land use classification for recreational vehicle parks. This opens the door for The Resort at Burnt Store Lakes, a multimillion dollar, upscale, RV Park planned off Burnt Store Road in northwest Cape Coral.

Cliff Repperger, vice president of Avalon Engineering, who is involved with the project of the upscale RV resort, complimented the result. Expectations were set for size of the property, appearance, boundaries and type of vehicles to be used by registered guests .

Robert Hancik, a nearby resident, commented on the project saying he had no issue with it except the name. He said many places nearby have similar names and it would confuse emergency workers if an incident arose.

Officials are considering a name change and have Tranquility Lakes as one of the options.

Finally, in a 7-1 vote, with Derrick Donnell dissenting, the city approved a resolution that supports the Cape Coral Municipal Charter School System receiving money from the Lee County School District to assist in balancing its budget. Donnell said the issue was one for the state, not the school district.

Lee Bush, administrator of the system presented at the meeting. He said they are not in a financial emergency but have needed to dip into its operating expenses to pay their full debt payment. They also have reserves.

“We’re only concerned about the money that Cape parents who attend our schools paid,” Bush said. “We need Lee County to give our parents’ tax money back to the schools.”

Cape Coral Permits Update!

Posted in Bob Ashworth, Bob Ashworth Realtor, Cape Coral News, Cape Coral Permit News, Cape Coral Real Estate, Cape Coral Real Estate Market, Cape Coral Realtor, Real Estate News

Permit-Reissued-for-Cape-Coral-Seawalls-and-Docks

USA: Permit Reissued for Cape Coral Seawalls and Docks

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Jacksonville District reissued Programmatic General Permit (PGP) SAJ-91, authorizing the city of Cape Coral to process permits for the construction, maintenance, and repair of single-family docks and seawalls along the city shoreline.

The original five-year permit was issued in October 2007 and expired in October 2012 and has since been under review.

The Corps was unable to automatically reissue the PGP because in the interim, the Cape Coral waterways were designated as critical habitat for the endangered smalltooth sawfish, requiring consultation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) under the provisions of the Endangered Species Act.

The Biological Opinion from NMFS, received in December 2012, stated that “work performed under the PGP would not jeopardize the continued existence of any threatened or endangered species, nor adversely modify critical habitat” and included new reporting requirements. The Corps then submitted the proposed permit to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which determined that the proposed PGP was consistent with the state’s federally approved coastal zone management program and qualified for a water quality certification. Following a Feb. 25 resolution by the city council, the city manager for the city of Cape Coral signed a Local Operating Agreement Feb. 28, accepting the responsibility for processing future single-family dock and seawall permits and the Corps issued the final permit Feb. 28.

Programmatic general permits streamline the permit process by avoiding duplication and reducing the need for separate approvals from the Corps and the state of Florida or local municipalities for minor work in waters of the United States, including navigable waters. Further, they reduce the costs associated with permit processing and increase efficiency for applicants seeking permits for similar activities in Florida’s waters.

“The goal of the Corps’ regulatory program is to ensure balance between human needs and protection of aquatic resources,” said Tunis McElwain, chief of the Fort Myers regulatory section. “Of course, we must meet the requirements of laws such as the Endangered Species Act, whether the Corps is authorizing activities in waters of the United States or delegating that authority to another entity. Along those lines, we have worked very closely with the city and regulatory agencies throughout this process, and we are confident that issuing the PGP to the city of Cape Coral will best serve the public’s interest, achieve our goal and benefit taxpayers.”

The current PGP will remain in effect for five years unless suspended or revoked prior to expiration.
