- The removal of yard debris is proceeding, with Public Works crews working ten-hour days, six days a week. Crews began at the northern end of the city and are heading south. Public Works will make one sweep, north to south through the city, and then will return to the north to begin a second sweep. Residents are asked to put loose tree debris, such as leaves, in bags or containers. This will help Public Works crews to work faster, and will make the neighborhoods cleaner.
- Residents are required to get permits for repairs. The permit fees are low. When a resident gets a permit, the City checks to be certain that the contractor is licensed in St. Johns County. Residents should not have unlicensed contractors do any repair work.
- FEMA is revising the Flood Maps for the City of St. Augustine Beach. A community outreach regarding these flood maps was conducted for all County residents. When revised panels are completed, the City will begin an outreach program for residents having concerns regarding their property. This notice will be posted at City Hall, on the City’s website, and in the Beaches News Journal.
The City will have transparencies made to overlay the City’s zoning maps. They will pinpoint properties and clearly reflect the revised flood designation. There may still be instances where some properties will have two designations bisecting their property and will still require flood insurance. Others may no longer need the insurance.
The Department of Building and Zoning will supply the documentation needed to provide to insurance companies.
- The City of St. Augustine Beach requested planning services to compare the Land Development Code to the Comprehensive Plan. The audit was developed through a partnership between the City of St. Augustine Beach, the Northeast Florida Regional Council and the consulting team of England-Thims & Miller and Mike Stauffer, Architect.
