Have your say on the next plan for A1A-SR 200
The Nassau County Board of County Commissioners and the Planning and Economic Opportunity Department have kicked off a major “Corridor Design” plan for a 13-mile segment of State Road 200/A1A in Yulee from Police Lodge Road west of I-95 to the Thomas J. Shave Jr. bridge, according to a news release from that department.
The board has engaged GAI Consultants to work with the county in this plan.
“Envisioned as the Timber to Tides Trail, the goals of the study are to transform SR 200/A1A into a place that functions not just as a major roadway, but a place that provides different opportunities for living and working, and creates a sense of place in Nassau County based on our community’s history, character, and quality of life,” according to the news release. “The County seeks a plan for the Corridor so that it will be functional and of value to the community over the long-term. The study will emphasize community identity, enhance the public realm and streetscape, encourage recreation and bicycle and pedestrian activity, promote compact mixed-use development patterns, and improve environmental quality and floodplain management, while also attracting private investment and making use of already developed sites.”
Residents, businesses and visitors are invited to speak and give their input about their “vision for SR 200.”
