Now that Fish Island has been procured by the state of Florida, the City of St. Augustine Commission is preparing to sign a lease agreement and finalize a land management plan. Florida’s Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC) requires that a management plan be submitted for approval within 10 months of an executed lease. This lease between the City and the State of Florida includes a description of the land, duration of time the City will manage it, how the land may be used, and more.
At the City Commission Meeting on September 28 at 5:00pm, J.B. Miller, Land Management Coordinator, will present the lease agreement for Commission approval, as well as present a brief update on what will happen next with the land, the results of the public input questionnaire, and suggest a name for the property. Attendance at the Commission meeting will be permitted per CDC guidelines and, as always, can be streamed live at www.CityStAugTV.com.
