Comprehensive Plan Update Open House on July 23

St. Johns County invites the public to participate in the first open house for the County’s Comprehensive Plan Update as it crafts strategies to implement the community’s vision. On July 23, two sessions will be held (10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.) at the County Auditorium, 500 San Sebastian View, St. Augustine. The Office of Public Affairs created a video to further highlight this public engagement opportunity.

The Comprehensive Plan is a state-required document that must be evaluated for updates at least once every seven years and is designed to guide a jurisdiction’s future actions. For St. Johns County, it will present a long-range vision for a community’s future with long-range goals, objectives, and policies.

During both open house sessions on July 23, County staff and its consultant, Inspire Placemaking Collective, will guide participants through multiple stations meant to provoke ideas on implementing each of the vision themes created through the public engagement process.

Additionally, the community has until July 31 to complete a survey to provide additional input on implementing the St. Johns County community vision. The public may take the survey at or any of the following locations:
