Charter Review Committee meeting Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA (WKMG) – Cocoa Beach will re-look at the possibility Wednesday night of adding the option to increase building height limits back on the ballot.
The Charter Review Committee that examines possible amendments to the city charter will discuss the height and density limit during a meeting Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
The building height ordinance currently limits structures to 45 feet tall. Developers can build above that limit if a majority of the city commissioners approves the project.
The ordinance has kept Cocoa Beach from booming into a strip of high tower hotels, like other Florida beach cities.
Several of the high-end condominiums like Xanadu and Stonewood Towers East, built in the 1980s, were constructed before the building ordinance was in effect.
