The City of St. Augustine has been developing a Harbor Management Plan for Matanzas Bay and Salt Run. After months of research and planning, a fourth draft of that plan was recently presented to the public at the fourth of a series of working group meetings. For further information on the meeting or on the Draft Harbor Management Plan itself, please call 904-825-1010.

Among the plan’s goals are a management system determining where boats may anchor safely, requiring that live-aboard vessels properly dispose of waste, addressing the issue of derelict boats, and ultimately encouraging responsible boating and increased public accessibility to the water.
