Council backs mayor's vision for $3M in waterways improvements
Kayak access, other projects to improve access
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – City Council cleared the way on Tuesday for Mayor Lenny Curry to pursue over $3 million in waterway access infrastructure projects in multiple locations around the city.
The approval allows for projects totaling $3,082,359, some of which is reimbursable from a Florida Inland Navigation District grant of $1,257,695, a grant that was awarded to the city last year.
The projects detailed include a dock replacement and extension at Half Moon Island Park, lighting at Sisters Creek, a floating dock and fishing platform at Riverfront Park, a ramp extension at the St. Johns Marina on the Southbank, a boat ramp dock extension and kayak launch in Mandarin, dock modifications on the Trout River and Ribault River channel markers.
