Summary

The Myakka was designated as the state's only "Florida Wild and Scenic River" by the Florida State Legislature in 1985. The act provides for preservation and management of the 34-mile portion of the river within Sarasota County, and limits development and construction on the river and adjacent lands. The Act also created the Myakka River Management Coordinating Council to oversee the Myakka. The Council has the authority to recommend amendments to the Act.
