In 1786, while under Spanish rule, King Charles IV made provision that although there would be no religion other than Catholic in Florida, willing settlers would not be forced to convert.

Construction is up in Oyster Bay Harbour, Florida

Factors that influence this positive trend are multiple, such as a real demand after almost 5 years of construction stagnation, longterm low interest rates, a return to population growth in Florida after the 2008 exodus caused by job market contractions and more.
