Sep 16 - Beachwalk comes up again at Commissioners Meeting

Sep 16 - Beachwalk comes up again at Commissioners Meeting

Beachwalk Development IS BACK:

The Beachwalk proposed rezoning and site plan approval will resurface at the Monday, September 16 Board of Commissioners meeting, 5:00 PM at the Board Chambers in Bunnell. It will be "untabled" and therefore will come up for a vote in order to "put it to bed."

HCA opposes this project because it adds about 14 more homes than would be allowed with the current zoning. This adds additional traffic and extends evacuation times.

Please come out to support our opposition by wearing a green shirt. Numbers represent power and will influence this vote!

Location: A1A & Jungle Hut Rd - July 15 Backup material for Commissioners
Density: 50 Homes on 12.44 acres (50-foot lots)
Traffic estimate: 571 trips/day (with 54 homes)

Brazilian Pepper Removal

Andi Covell, Gauri Wainganker, Ann Butler, and Michael Lagasse recently volunteered to help remove invasive Brazilian Pepper plants from A1A near Island Estates.

Brazilian Pepper plants are native to Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina.  It is believed that they made it to Florida as early as 1842.  These invasive plants pose a threat because they create a canopy that shades out and kills native plants.  There is already over 700,000 acres of Brazilian Pepper plants in Florida.

The Hammock Conservation Coalition is doing its part to protect the Hammock from this invasive species.  If you are interested in helping, please join our group by clicking here.
