Environmental Regulations

In order to protect, preserve, and manage Florida’s valuable environmental resources, regulations are set by the federal, state, county, and city governments. These regulations serve to minimize harmful impacts to the environment during human activities. In Miami Beach some of the most common activities are new construction, renovations, demolitions, and the operation of commercial facilities such as restaurants and waste handling stations.
