Florida Senate releases proposed redistricting descriptions


District 16 is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and by county boundaries along its northern and parts of its western and southern boundaries. The district is closely united in territory and is connected from north to south by Interstate 95 and the Florida Turnpike. At the Stuart hearing, residents of northern Palm Beach County and Martin County testified to their desire to be in the same district due to their common interests along the Treasure Coast. The district eliminates the division of Martin and St. Lucie Counties and the way that current District 16 stretches from Charlotte Harbor on the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic.
