Key to Symbols/Terms

  • DCA, as in 2d DCA in a case citation, means the Florida District Court of Appeals, with the number in front indicating which District Court.

One response to “Key to Symbols/Terms

  1. I am involved in a battle royale on Miami Beach. I have a historic apartment building that I have owned for about 24 years. It has never been closed due to any type of renovation, remodeling, etc… It is located in a high density RM-2 dsitrict, where apartments are allowed to collect resort taxes as per CMB Code Sec. 102-306 and 307. About 3 weeks ago the fire marshal cited Fl. Fire Prevention Code, FS 633.161(2)(a), and said a serious and immediate danger existed because I was selling short term rentals. She evicted everyone in my hotel with one hour notice! Isn’t this a “land use or zoning requirement” where Fl. Fire Prevention Code does not apply?
