CCA (Coastal Community Association) Members,

There have been questions as to when the area that was removed from CBRA became effective.  It became effective immediately upon passage and signing.  Representative Dunn and Senator Rubio made this happen.  The County continues to pursue removing all the CBRA designation.  They will discuss the progress of their effort at our annual meeting.  Below is Steve Southerland’s response to the question.  The removed area is now able to obtain FEMA insurance coverage which is a huge savings. 

Be kind, Be gentle, Be patient. 

Dr. Pat

FWS says the changes are effective immediately on enactment so the Gulf County changes were effective in February. The map here shows the updated boundaries:  https://www.fws.gov/cbra/maps/Mapper.html
