DEP dismisses hotel owner's petition

TREASURE ISLAND – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has dismissed a petition by three beach hotel operators who objected to a DEP permit that would allow two events on the beach in March.

The decision opens the door for the Rotary Club of the Gulf Beaches to move forward with its plans to host its annual carnival fundraiser March 13-16 and a one-day classic car show by the American Legion on March 8.

Operators of the Thunderbird Beach Resort, Windjammer Resort Hotel and Page Terrace Beachfront Motel filed the petition.

“The reason it was dismissed is because the petitioners failed to demonstrate standing,” Treasure Island City Attorney Maura Kiefer said in an email to city staff. “Specifically, they did not allege environmental injuries ‘in fact,’ which may be properly considered under the applicable laws. They have 15 days to amend and re-file but I see no facts which would serve to cure the lack of standing.”

Meanwhile, the city has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the three motel operators who recently filed the legal action to prohibit the city from allowing parking and the use of vehicles on the beach during public events.

The suit claims the city is in violation of state law and DEP regulations by allowing parking and cars on the beach for numerous events throughout the year.
