In the midst of our final preparations for the Save Guana Gala (a sold-out event happening this Saturday), a major development took place. On Monday,
a judge ruled
on St. Johns County's motion to dismiss the Ponte Vedra Corporation's
against the county.
We're pleased that PVC was
not successful in circumventing public input, and their proposed Vista Tranquila subdivision is back in the county’s rezoning application process. That means a hearing before the St. Johns County Planning and Zoning Agency will be scheduled soon. After that, a second hearing will take place in front of our county commissioners. One of the most important actions you can take to fight destruction of habitat at the Outpost is to plan to attend both hearings. You'll receive an email update as soon as those dates are announced.
We will have an attorney and a land use consultant representing our position at the two hearings. The timing could not be better for our Gala which will be providing funding to help pay those experts. We're grateful for the generous response from so many - Gala attendees
and those who cannot attend but who sent donations.
If you haven't donated yet (or even if you have), there's never been a better time to make a tax-exempt donation to Save Guana Now. It's amazing how those donations - large and small - add up!
We will provide further information on the judge's ruling at the Gala Saturday,
and we'll discuss in much greater detail the preparations for the hearings at a meeting we've scheduled for Wednesday of next week. We hope to see you at that meeting!
MEETING: Wednesday, April 12, a general meeting of Save Guana Now will take place at the
Ponte Vedra Community Center at 148 Canal Blvd, Ponte Vedra Beach. All opponents of development at the Outpost are welcome to attend. We value your input. Bumper stickers will be free to those who attend the meeting. We will also have yard signs available for purchase.
