Good News!

     At the May 7 County Commissioners Meeting

  • Commissioners unanamously agreed the clear cutting of our county had to stop.
  • Commissioners felt there "had to be a better way"
  • They advised staff to come back with a proposal that stopped the clear cutting .



The Bottom Line:

     We thank the SJC Commissioners for their sincere consideration of the damage clear cutting is doing to our county.

     We thank the SJC staff members who worked diligently through the process!

      We look forward to working with the staff and the North East Florida Builders Association to find a better way than clear-cutting. 

      Let's save our trees and our wildlife together!

County staff are still working on a draft for changes to the Land Development code to prevent clear cutting.

Once complete it will be voted on by the commissioners.
