ST. JOHNS COUNTY COMMISSIONERS APPROVE DUNE ENHANCEMENT PROJECT
Proposed New Public Beach Access & Parking Options
St. Johns County will be hosting a public meeting soon to discuss potential community-wide changes required to qualify for partial beach renourishment funding from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A preliminary study has identified the following items as potential changes within the Ponte Vedra Beach MSD to meet the Corp of Engineers’ criteria for potential Federal funding:
- Public Shuttle/Bus Service to Existing and New Beach Access Points
- Acquisition of Private Property for New Public Parking and Beach Access Points
- Identification of Public Rights-of-Way for Designated Public Parking Spaces
The MSD Trustees discussed the preliminary study at the May 10th public meeting and passed a resolution in opposition of the community changes without broad community involvement. The MSD supports beach renourishment and beach access but cannot support permanent changes of this scale without the awareness and support of residents related to the costs and benefits to the community. St. Johns County and the MSD will provide public notice for the time and location for the upcoming public meeting.
The above referenced study documents and the MSD letter can be found in the link below. Inquires for additional information can me made with Damon Douglas, Coastal Manager with St. Johns County (firstname.lastname@example.org).

2021 Sea Turtle Nesting Season Begins in May
St. Johns County, Fl – The beaches of St. Johns County are home to several species of endangered or threatened sea turtles. Residents and visitors have a special opportunity and responsibility to protect these magnificent creatures and their vulnerable nesting sites as they return each season to nest along the beaches. Sea turtle nesting season begins May 1, and St. Johns County officials are asking residents, visitors, and businesses to help protect natural habitat by observing all nesting season laws and regulations. All beachfront properties are required to reduce their impact by eliminating interior and exterior lights which may disrupt nesting sea turtles. Volleyball court lights at St. Johns County Pier Park will turn on at sunset and turn off at 9 p.m. during this time. Beach visitors can also have a positive impact on nesting sea turtles by taking the following actions while enjoying the beach:
