There are a couple of ways to check city services, policies and regulations. One is to search the city website using the ‘search’ function or review the city codes and hope you can find what appears to meet your needs. This can be a very frustrating experience.

A much easier method is to type ‘guides’ in that same search box and you’ll find a plethora of guides and references to answer most of your needs. One of the best is the “Waterfront Property Owner’s Guide” that covers seawalls construction, maintenance, and replacement. Also included are guidelines for boat repair, plantings along seawalls, no liquid discharge to canals (including pool overflow), fertilizer restrictions, mangroves and possible canal odors. This is also where you will find hurricane preparation guidelines and procedures.

A sampling of other guides:

There are also guides for Downtown History Walk, Mural Guide, Parks That Teach, City Waterfront Walking Tour, Punta Gorda Then & Now, and Bicycle Etiquette.

A reminder that if you are interested in current and upcoming events read the ‘Weekly Report” posted on the city website every Friday afternoon. Facebook, and City Council meetings on the ‘Charlotte County Video on Demand Archives’ page of the Charlotte County Website or your cable service are additional information sources.

Finally, “The Unique Land Regulations for PGI” may be found in the front of your PGICA Directory. These are regulations that were adapted to replace the original deed restrictions and generally exceed standard city codes or cover situations unique to PGI.
