Sea-Level Rise & Storm Surge Workshop
In 2015, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 1094, titled “Peril of Flood.” The new law specifies new requirements for the coastal management element of a local government’s comprehensive plan related to coastal flooding and the related impacts of sea level rise.
To comply with the Peril of Flood requirements, the City of Safety Harbor is updating the City’s Comprehensive Plan’s Coastal Management and Conservation Element.
To this, the City will be hosting a community workshop on Thursday, September 30, at 6:00 PM in the Commission Chambers, to present the proposed amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, along with supplemental data and analysis. If you are unable to attend or would like to provide feedback prior to the workshop, please contact Brandon Henry, Assistant Community Development Director by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (727) 724-1555, Extension 1703.

Outside Agency Funding
The City of Safety Harbor is taking requests for outside agency funding. To be considered, funding requests must be returned to the City no later than September 22, 2021.
National Hispanic American Heritage Month
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage month from September 15th to October 15th by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
The September 15th date is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for the Latin American countries of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16th and September 18th, respectively. Columbus Day or Dia de la Raza, which is October 12th falls within this 30 day period.
