Seaside Marina Slip Ownership in Question
By Bill Lopez
BELLEAIR - Back in 1992 an ordinance governing the ownership of slips at Seaside Marina in the Town of Belleair stated that only residents of the Residential Plan District (RPD) within the town could legally own the slip leases.
However over the years most of the slips have come to be owned by persons who reside outside the RPD. According to Town Manager Mike Maxwell about 17 of the 24 slips in the marina are owned by non RPD residents.
The RPD is a small section of the Town of Belleair on the beach side with about 500 homes.
After some complaints, the town has decided to review the matter but to wait until the winter months when residents return to the area from their summer residences.
The matter has been put on the commission calendar for January 6, 2009.
