The Office Of
Environmental Services has received the following land management
plans for properties 160 acres and smaller in size. Acquisition and
Restoration Council (ARC) members who wish to have any of these
plans placed on a formal ARC agenda for discussion should contact
ARC Staff Director, prior to the date indicated below. Please note
that at least three ARC members must make the request for a plan for
a property smaller than 160 acres in size to be scheduled for an ARC
agenda. If we do not receive three requests by the stated deadline
to schedule a plan for consideration at an ARC meeting, the plan
will be approved.
Key Vista, Pasco County (Lease No. 3898)
Key Vista Park is a 102.86 acre nature preserve located on the southwestern side of Pasco County
along the Gulf of Mexico. The State of Florida acquired property through the Conservation and
Recreational Lands Program and subsequently leased the park to Pasco County. The site consists
of approximately 1,600 feet of waterfront along the Gulf of Mexico and 2,200 feet along Rocky
Creek and Sleepy Lagoon. The park’s natural communities include Sandhill, Mesic/Wet Flatwoods,
Scrubby Flatwoods, Basin Swamp, Freshwater Marsh, Salt Marsh, Coastal Strand and Disturbed Land.
Park amenities include picnic facilities, hiking trails, an observation tower, boardwalk, restrooms,
and a primitive kayak boat launch along Rocky Creek.
The link below contains the plan and associated maps. The Division of State Lands will
approve the plan unless three Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC) members request
that it be placed on a future Council meeting agenda. The deadline for ARC member to make
this request is October 22, 2015.
