GREEN COVE SPRINGS – The Green Cove Springs City Council presented the second reading on an ordinance that will add new definitions, revise definitions for lot widths and setbacks and establish flag lot requirements. The amendments were initially proposed last November by city Planning and Zoning director Mike Daniels, and it was approved, 5-0.
The council also agreed to recommend a $10 a month option to restart service for security lights with the $10 monthly payment option at the March 2 meeting.
The council heard a proposal from Connie Gladding, President of the Green Cove Springs Gardening Club, that the city become a Monarch City USA in addition to being a Tree City USA. A Monarch City supports the current and future population of the monarch butterfly.
The council also learned there have been 33 residents who’ve applied to be on the Citizen’s Advisory Committee. They will receive acceptance letters to begin the process of becoming members.
Three items were pulled from the consent agenda for discussion.
The first was the purchase of a concrete restroom building for the Augusta Savage Friendship Park. The purchase includes a cost of $79,129. The project was originally submitted as a part of the list of CARES Act projects in October 2020. The building will house one male and one female restroom stall.
The second item involved at bid for GIS Design consultant to develop a comprehensive online mapping system. After five bids were entered, a selection committee ranked them and selected Geographic Technologies Group.
The third item was a handicap playground to be built in Spring Park, for the amount of $133,376 or less. It would be for children 5-12, and will contain comfortable playground equipment for the disabled.
All three items pass with a five to zero vote by the council.
