Understanding the Mitigation Banking Process
We respect the need to protect our unique and beautiful environment by various conservation efforts, while at the same time fostering economic development in local communities.
Mitigation banking in Florida has emerged as an extremely valuable and beneficial tool employed to balance state conservation interests and mitigation banking process requirements associated with new development projects. Economic and practical considerations have diminished the viability of traditional on-site mitigation, and off-site mitigation has become more of the rule than the exception in recent years.
Mitigation banks and the purchase of mitigation bank credits is a significantly effective and useful mechanism to satisfy off-site mitigation requirements precipitated by new development in both the private sector and public sector.
