Naming of Sawgrass LAke Park
Section 267.062(1) of the Florida Statutes provides:
"Except as specificalIy provided by law, no State
building, road, bridge, park, recreational complex,
or other similar facility shall be named for any
NOte that the statute specifically applies to State parks.
Since under Section 373.139, FS, the governing board of
the di trict is empowered to acquire land, and since I
assume) it holds land in its own name, it is my opinion
that the land so held by it is not subject to Section
267.062; therefore, the P&nallas/Anclote basin should
be able to legally name its park after a living person.
