We would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Fourth of July! As a reminder, there will be no meeting this week. We look forward to seeing you July 10th! 
Last week we welcomed Wiley Page, VP of Transportation Planning with Atkins.  Mr. Page gave an informative and interesting talk about the current 5-year update to the North Florida TPO's long range transportation plan, North Florida's transportation systems, and thoughts on future changes in how we will get around which is expected to change drastically over the next 25 years!  If you'd like to learn more, please visit

Our 6,892-yard private golf course at Hidden Hills Country Club was previously the site of the Greater Jacksonville Open, a tournament that eventually evolved into what is now the TPC Sawgrass. Among winners at our course were Gary Player, Tony Jacklin and Don January.
It's now an Arnold Palmer Signature layout, known for its intriguing curves and contours and rolling fairways, a setting that you don't often find in Florida. Our fairways are lined with majestic pines and oaks; our lush greens have won a name for Hidden Hills in North Florida.
