Food for Fines Program Donations Increase – Library patrons were exceptionally generous this holiday season, donating nearly 9,000 food items –  an 18 percent increase over last year – for the County's Health and Human Services Food Pantry through Food for Fines. An annual program in place from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day, Food for Fines enables patrons to donate food for families in need while "paying down" overdue library fines. The donations allow the Food Pantry to operate year-round, and result in one of the County's most effective food drives.

Projects, Advisories, Status Updates

St. Johns County Golf Course Master Plan Update – The St. Johns Golf Club, 4900 Cypress Links Blvd., is currently in the process of a potential Master Plan update that would include repairing, replacing, and updating various aspects of the golf course. St. Johns County released a Request for Proposals (RFP) in November 2018 to determine market interest in a potential public-private partnership to utilize excess land within the golf course in exchange for the renovations. An RFP evaluation committee ranked the two qualified proposals during a public meeting on December 20, 2018, and a Letter of Intent was issued to the most qualified applicant, Neighborhood Realty, Inc./McGarvey Residential Communities.

The Board of County Commissioners unanimously voted to authorize staff to negotiate a contract with the most qualified applicant at the January 15, 2019 board meeting. That process is currently underway and a negotiated contract will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners for consideration and action at a future public hearing. For additional information, please call 904.209.0322, email, or view the following documents:
