GrayRobinson Government Affairs and Lobbying Team’s Kim McDougal, Ph.D. is proud to announce successful advocacy efforts culminating in St Lucie County being awarded the largest grant with state funds in the history of the Florida Boating Improvement Program (FBIP). The FBIP, under the Boating and Waterways Section of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, awarded St. Lucie County up to $1.27 million in funding for the North Causeway Island Park Boat Launch, Amenities, and Parking Improvement Project. The project is designed to replace the existing boat ramp and parking area, creating a safer and ADA-accessible launch with additional trailer and ADA trailer parking spaces. The improvements also include upgrading and relocating the existing restroom facility, park pavilions, picnic tables, kayak/canoe launch area, lighting, and stormwater utilities.
