County Administrator Joy Andrews Presents Update at Chamber of Commerce EDC Quarterly Breakfast

Today, St. Johns County Administrator Joy Andrews presented an update to more than 200 attendees at the Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Council Quarterly Breakfast, held at the World Golf Village Renaissance St. Augustine Resort, 500 South Legacy Trail, St. Augustine.

Andrews provided insight regarding the infrastructure upgrades taking place across the County and how those improvements factor into the County’s long-range plans for growth management. St. Johns County continues to be one of the fastest-growing counties in the state, presenting new opportunities and challenges.

“It is so important for us to have an informed community,” Andrews said. “We want the community to tell us what they want their County government and home to look like. The only way to have that authentic, meaningful dialogue is when they are informed. It is on us, on County staff including myself, to go around this community and make sure that our neighbors are in the know.”

The key components of the presentation focused on growth and infrastructure, financial stewardship, open governance and transparency, and economic resiliency. The complete presentation can be viewed here.

“We are excited for the future and grateful for our partnership with St. Johns County,” St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Isabelle Renault said. “It is vital for our business community to know what to expect regarding upcoming infrastructure so they can make plans for their own business in the future and see where they want to grow.”
