BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – In an effort to aid boaters, Cocoa Beach has started to install lighted markers at the west end of the city’s channel where they meet the Banana River main channel. 

In the many years that have passed since the city channels were first established the US Coast Guard rules have changed.

As part of the permitting process for the channel marker lights, the US Coast Guard has requested that each channel be named.

The 200 channel has been referred to as Houseboat Cut for many years and the 0-99 channel has been submitted as Hospital Cut.

The residents of the city are encouraged to submit names for the remaining channels.
