Where is the Riverkeeper on this?
Agenda item IV of the 11/12/15 Jacksonville Waterways Commission agenda reads:
Presentation on specific Notice of Proposed Change to the Consolidated Downtown Development of Regional Impact
Speaker-Aundra Wallace, Downtown DEVELOPMENT Authority
Speaker- Guy Parola, Downtown DEVELOPMENT Manager
Another agenda item VIII under New Business reads:
Waterways Access, Beth Meyer (Chief of DISABLED Services)
Some thoughts and concerns. Also, Please continue to vote.
Nobody from JEA was there that I am aware of to speak as the present owners of the property.
Aundra Wallace was a No Show. Is it the DIA or DDA? When did the Authority Change or just a typo?
The legislation is 2015-777 and was not assigned to Waterways but was there to side on caution because of the Waterways component of the project. And because of the legislative calendar to move this through.
Waterways approved the project with a Resolution of support.
I spoke with Mike Balanky prior to his presentation and he is supportive of an ADA handicapped watercraft hand launch spot next to his project. I have met with JEA and the opportunity for an ADA handicapped watercraft hand launch parking spot lies solely with those that are making the decisions for the school board property. I wanted to reach out to Mike and Elements because they would be neighbors to this ADA Handicapped Public hand launch parking spot. He supports it. Mike, correct me if I'm wrong with that. Please.
Now agenda item VIII under New Business
WATERWAYS ACCESS, Beth Meyer(Chief of Disabled Services)
Talk about timing!
