Golf Carts Approved to Operate on Shoal Line Blvd

HERNANDO BEACH – The Hernando Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) unanimously approved an ordinance to allow golf carts on portions of Shoal Line Blvd, but it may be a while before the change goes into effect.

A recent survey of Hernando Beach residents revealed an overwhelming consensus that golf carts should be allowed to be driven on Shoal Line Blvd, between Bluefish Drive and Calienta Street.

Before the ordinance can take effect, Shoal Line Blvd will have to be repaved and new signage installed advising of the new 30mph speed limit and warning drivers of golf carts in the area. Sources say that could take between 6 to 12 months to complete.

Prior to the vote, Commissioner Steve Champion stated that all Hernando County roadways with speed limits under 30mph should allow golf carts.

The change comes on the heels of contentious debate over a current ordinance that prohibits ATVs on unpaved roadways. A recent Sheriff's Office survey showed most people wanted to remove the ordinance. The BOCC will vote on repealing the ordinance in the coming weeks.
