Good News for Florida’s Coastal Historic Districts!

May 23, 2023

Earlier this month, we let you know about state legislation that threatened historic districts in Florida’s coastal communities. Many of you responded by writing to your state legislators to express your concerns about the potential impact of these bills. As the final week of the legislative session ended, the legislation failed to advance, removing the threat to Florida’s historic districts for this year.

Your actions made a difference to historic places across Florida. Thank you for your support. While preservationists in Florida are feeling relieved, it is possible that similar legislation will be introduced again next year. We hope we can count on you to once again stand up for Florida's historic places if needed.
