Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND)

The first part of this legislation establishes Inland Navigation Districts, which are authorized to plan for and manage the development of inland waterways, and to maintain public navigation channels within the state. Districts may also elect to implement and administer other programs and regulations pertaining to navigation and waterway development and conservation, and may restrict certain kinds of development on or adjacent to the waterway. Two main districts exist: the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND), which has jurisdiction over the eastern portion of the state, and the West Coast Inland Navigation District (WCIND), which has jurisdiction over four counties in the western portion of the state. The second part of this legislation pertains exclusively to FIND.
