The Florida State of the Coast report is an effort to analyze the indicators contained in FACT - the Florida Assessment of Coastal Trends and identify trends affecting some key coastal issues. It is our hope that this report will provide coastal decision-makers with a better understanding of Florida’s natural, cultural, and economic coastal resources, and thus support improved resource management by local, regional, and state governments.
The report is saved in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. In order to view this docuemnt you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you do not have the Acrobat Reader you may download it here and follow the installation instructions contained in the file.
Florida State of the Coast
Erratum: There is an error on page 10 of the publication (page 12 of the Acrobat file). Due to changes during the 1996 session of the Florida Legislature, the referenced program administered by the State of Florida now pays up to 50% of the non-federal share of the costs of beach erosion control projects. The 75% figure stated in the text is no longer correct.
