Coastal areas around the world are under constant threat from erosion, rising sea levels, and extreme weather events. To combat this, property owners and municipalities must consider protective measures such as seawalls and living shorelines. While both options aim to mitigate erosion and protect property, there are significant differences in their environmental and long-term impacts.

Periodically, we review our user fees so we may recover the costs associated with the services we provide to customers. If these fees are not charged or updated, the difference between the cost of the service and what is charged to the applicant is subsidized by taxpayers. This year, the Planning Commission contracted MGT Consulting to review these fees and provide recommendations for adjustment.

After 13 years of volunteer service to the Hillsborough River Board Technical Advisory Council (TAC), many as the Chair, Dr. Richard Brown is moving on. Dr. Brown leaves a great legacy of success in ensuring the Hillsborough River is a vibrant and healthy system for people and wildlife. Although he steps down from the River Board TAC, we are sure he will still be involved in the protection and conservation of the River into the future.

“Paddle on” Dr. Brown!

More information:
In the fall of 2022, students from the Florida State University’s (FSU) Department of Urban and Regional Planning (DURP) program as part of the Mark & Marianne Barnebey Planning and Development Lab began identifying legacy communities in Gadsden County. Lead by Dennis J. Smith, AICP, Planner-in-Residence in FSU’s Department of Urban and Regional Planning & Director of the Mark and Marianne Barnebey Planning and Development Lab, the goal of the project was to document these communities, the stories of their residents, and important institutions. Learn how these students traveled through Gadsden County collecting data and interviewing residents and community leaders. Together, they compiled an informational booklet about the 25 legacy communities identified as well as an e-chamber of commerce where business owners could list their businesses for the community to easily find.

One AICP credit is available.
