Urge Your State Representative: Protect Florida’s Coastal Historic Districts! 

Proposed legislation currently pending in the Florida House and Senate would remove protections for hundreds of historic structures in Florida’s coastal communities. The aim of the two bills is to support the resiliency of our coastline, and we are grateful to the bill sponsors for listening to preservationists' concerns and making improvements. However, the bills as currently drafted would still allow the demolition of many locally and nationally designated historic buildings without an opportunity for local historic preservation commissions to consider their historic and community value. Florida’s historic districts help attract tourism to all parts of the state. As they currently stand, SB1526 and HB1647 could threaten these economic engines.

Contact your state representatives today to urge amendments to The Resiliency and Safe Structures Act (SB 1526/HB 1647) to protect historic buildings in Florida’s coastal historic districts.
