The Regulatory Peer Review Forum was implemented in March of 1996 and focuses on regulatory issues. Members of the Peer Review Group include representatives from local and state governments, as well as representatives of firms who regularly submit permit applications for projects. These representatives provide input on questions, concerns, and proposed improvements to those parts of the regulatory process which relate to environmental resource permitting.
An invitation is extended to anyone who wishes to share perspectives on all aspects of the permitting process in order that the Regulation Division can better serve the public.
If you have any questions, please contact Tony Waterhouse firstname.lastname@example.org (561) 682-6867
A 2009 amendment to Chapter 373 of the Florida Statutes delegates to executive directors at the state's five water management districts the authority to approve permit applications related to water resources and the environment. To ensure continuing public involvement, the South Florida Water Management District is strengthening its commitment to transparency and open government by increasing public access to its permitting process via Monthly Regulatory Meetings held for the public.
