This is at the end of Santa Clara. There was a stop work order last year on it. Now they are starting to build where they filled in creek that runs into western lake. At that time I was told the lawyer frank Watson owned. It was up for sale not long ago not sure if it sold or not.

If this seems to be the beginning of a boat dock , they would need a FDEP permit - I would pick up the phone and call code enforcement and ask if there is an existing permit...

Those piles will either be used for building a retaining wall to fill in more or to elevate house above flood threat. Something similar was done on San Juan years ago (damage still exists, pictured below), code enforcement said it was a DEP issue and did nothing. A stop work order was only posted once an environmental engineer someone knew in Tampa looked into the lot permit and found it to be expired. Work stopped but not in time to save scores of really old pines and cypress trees and preventing a retaining wall from being erected and wetland filled.

You can see a posted hearing notice from last spring, not sure what exactly happened. The two other pics show that someone cleared the brush recently and put up a nice sterile parking spot I guess to entice someone foolish enough to buy the lot into doing so. It is starting to grow up with brush again. It should be noted that the water pictured in the Santa Clara snaps above would flow through here en route to Western Lake. Very nice thing to do :bang:posted.jpg sanjuanclearcut1.jpg sanjuanclearcut2.jpg

No answer from me glidewell,it’s easy to say we need something done with code enforcement, but if you still do nothing about violations what good is more officers.Talkis easy doing something about is a whole different case. So unless you plan on following through it’s just another empty promise.

Posting on the internet is easy for you. Have you tried to contact him directly? I bet he would be willing to discuss if you are respectful.
