+ Dry Dock outdoor roof approved
The Longboat Key Town Commission approved a 1,239-square-foot outdoor dining roof structure for the Dry Dock Waterfront Grill, 412 Gulf of Mexico Drive, at its Tuesday, June 30 special meeting.
The roof will be located 22 feet from the bay, and the special exception granted allows the roof to have a minimum of 20 feet waterfront yard, instead of the required 50-foot setback.
Dry Dock owner Eric Hammersand can now begin construction on his roof this summer, which will require extensive construction, including pilings being hammered into the ground.
Hammersand asked for the special meeting, so the restaurant could close during the slower summer season for construction.
+ Town Hall closed for Fourth of July
