The District’s Commercial Facilities Ordinance provides minimum standards for the operation and maintenance of Commercial Facilities located on District land or waters to protect public use, access and safety and to maintain good water and environmental quality.
Proposed changes to these ordinances are shown in the document that can be viewed here. Should the Board vote to adopt the revised ordinances, public notice will be given through legal notices published in newspapers in each county comprising part of the District’s service area.
