BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In a huge blow to anyone thinking about boating into Lake Boca this weekend to honor the cancelled “Boca Bash,” the City of Boca Raton just fired a shot across the bow.
An “anchoring ban” will be in effect this weekend as the result of the an executive order signed by Mayor Scott Singer.
Here’s the Cliff’s Notes version from the City of Boca Raton:
“The City issued a No Anchoring Emergency Order prohibiting recreation vessels from anchoring in Lake Boca or any part of the Intracoastal Waterway 500 feet to the north or south of Lake Boca that goes into effect 12:01am April 25.”
BocaNewsNow.com reported earlier this week that Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers said they’re prepared to issue citations on Lake Boca this weekend to anyone not following social distancing orders. The fear is that the cancellation of “Boca Bash” still won’t stop large groups of boaters from boating on the waterway. The anchor ban makes issuing citations and arrests easier.
You can read the complete order by clicking below. Remember: all recreational boat ramps in Palm Beach County remain closed. But there is nothing preventing someone from boating from their home into Lake Boca or other area waterways. You just can’t anchor there.
