Mexico Beach works to implement “Leave no Trace,” prepares for …

MEXICO BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – The city of Mexico Beach is working to implement a law meant to clean up the beaches.

The Leave No Trace referendum passed February 21st and since then, as the season picks up, the city says it’s seen more and more people leaving items on the beach.

City officials said they’ve been taking an educational approach when it comes to making sure people clear the beach after a day of fun in the sun.

“We have beach patrols going up and down the beaches, talking to people and engaging them letting them know there is this requirement now,” Mell Smigielski, the City Administrator for Mexico Beach, said.

“That has helped a lot of people not leaving their stuff on the beach as we thought would happen. “

Mexico Beach is also looking ahead to zoning for medical marijuana dispensaries.

At the planning and zoning board meeting Monday, members discussed working on a plan to determine where dispensaries can open up.

“Now we need to deal with where is it going to be, how many feet from a school does it need to be, how many feet from a church does it need to be? Things of that sort. Commercial, residential, so we had first attempt tonight [Monday] to start the discussion. “

The board will meet again on the first week of may to discuss the dispensary locations.
