4/24/17: Updated information from Club President Susie Scott
County Dock Rezoning Community Meeting Scheduled
Mandarin Community Club
12447 Mandarin Road
Date: Monday, May 1st
Time: 7-8:30 p.m.
A resolution was adopted unanimously earlier this year by the Board of Directors of the Mandarin Museum & Historical Society opposing Ordinance 2016-805, which would rezone almost 10 acres adjacent to County Dock Road. This rezoning, with access to County Dock Road, would forever destroy the scenic character of that road, one of only three roads in the City designated as scenic and historic corridors. County Dock Road is only 17 feet wide and has an extensive tree canopy, with many trees located within feet of the pavement.
Similar positions have been taken by the Mandarin Community Club, Scenic Jacksonville and City Beautiful Jax.
Here is a photograph showing the scenic beauty and narrow width of County Dock Road - between Mandarin Rd. and Loretto Rd.
If you are interested in learning more about this issue, please plan to attend this important community meeting.
