PETITION TO STOP LARGE VESSEL COMMERCIAL SEAFOOD EXPANSION AND SHORE BASED ACTIVITIES SOUTH OF FLAMINGO BLVD IN HERNANDO BEACH.

The undersigned residents and businesses from Hernando Beach, FL object to the unlawful operation of a waterless shrimp transport business by S&T Boat Repair and Bait, LLC’s (hereafter “S&T”) on certain absentee owner rental property at or near 3209-3211 Shoal Line Blvd, Hernando Beach, FL 34607, and more specifically described in S&T’s Application For Special Exception Use Permit (hereafter “SE # 1908”).

WHEREFORE, THE GROUNDS FOR OBJECTION to S&T’s SE # 1908 include but are not limited to the following: (1) The rental property is zoned C-2, Highway Commercial District (hereafter “C-2”); (2) S&T’s use of the property is in continuous or repeated violation of Hernando County’s zoning ordinance and the uses allowable in a C-2 District; (3) S&T’s use of the property is not eligible for a special exemption use permit neither in a C-2 District nor under the Special Exception Use Regulations applicable to all Hernando County Zoning Districts; and (4) If County Officials were to approve SE # 1908, it would constitute a reversal of prior decisions to uphold the residential compatibility and public interest standards of Hernando County’s Code of Ordinances and Comprehensive Plan; (5) If County Officials were to approve SE # 1908, it would be a dangerous precedent for the incompatible intrusion of large vessel commercial seafood fishing and related shore based activities in and along the manmade canals which were originally designed, intended and reserved for residential and commercial recreational use south of Flamingo Blvd., Hernando Beach, FL.

NOW THEREFORE, AND WITHOUT WAIVER:

THE UNDERSIGNED HEREBY PETITION the responsible Hernando County Officials and Staff to deny S&T’s Application for special exception use permit (SE # 1908), and to take appropriate actions necessary to impose daily fines of not less than $250.00 against S&T for each day that its unlawful zoning violation continues; all per Hernando County Code of Ordinances - Appendix A - Zoning – Article IX – Violations – Section 2. Enforcement - Remedies and Penalties – C. (2) & (4); and, F.S. 162.09.
