Jordan Marsh projects gets its green light

The city of Sanibel is set to move forward on the Jordan Marsh Water Quality Treatment Park.

On April 2, the city was approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a Nationwide Permit, a federal permit, for the project. James Evans, director of the Natural Resources Department, explained that the park required both federal and state permit approval because of the impact to the landscape.

Back in December, the city had received the Environmental Resource Permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection - the needed state permit.
