The undeveloped parkland adjacent to The Courtyards and Hanna Park, across from the Mayport Middle School on Mayport Rd. is targeted by the City of Jacksonville to be donated to a developer for an 80-unit apartment complex. The land is currently zoned for Recreation and Open Space. We feel that this should remain parkland and not be developed into more unneeded housing. There are already too many vacant apartments and homes in this area and not enough parks for our children to play. Once this zoning is changed it cannot be undone. Our Councilmember Ray Holt, District 11 and the City are hosting this Community Meeting to comment on their proposal, listen to our feedback and answer our questions. It is vital that we have as many citizens attend this meeting as possible!

Please visit our blog and attend this meeting on Thursday to show your support for Parks!!

As a parent & new resident to the Mayport Area, I cannot believe this is actually an issue..! There are Recreation Parks all over other areas of Jacksonville and nothing in all of Mayport. With an increasing possibility of the military base converting & expanding to accomodate hosting a Nuclear Carrier & Group in the future - this area will absolutely NEED a community recreation facility - instead of having the multitude of children and others out in the streets and parkinglots..! This would also give public access for the families to the beach & possibly offer nominal "pay-to-park" revenues... WE NEED TO HAVE WHAT WE SHOULD ALREADY HAVE IN THIS AREA!!
