Silt, Silt and more $ilt

 

In 2011, before beginning a run for the Fernandina Beach City Commission, a local attorney gave me most of the information linked below.  Everything below is public record, but reading may help in understanding the marina’s history.

Key Downtown Economic Driver…Fernandina Harbor Marina

Fuel for the local economy isn’t always actual “FUEL”, but a marina without nearby fuel is much more difficult to manage at a profit. After Hurricane Matthew, the marina in Downtown Fernandina Harbor Marina has been working at a fraction of it’s capacity. The fuel normally sold was interrupted by the damage and repairing the […]

Enterprise Funds All About Bigger Picture

The following is a reply to a post on another local blog. Fernandina is an odd community. By that, I don’t mean the people are odd. It has an unusual economic base, maintenance needs and level of complexity, for a relatively small town. Understanding how the parts function and create a benefit greater than the […]

Off-Site Parking Agreements and Impact to Development

I’m aware of at least one re-development paused after the recent discussions surrounding Slider’s parking, leased or rented in order to permit an expansion in the past. In the past, the City of Fernandina has allowed development requiring parking to proceed, if an agreement to use nearby parking can be reached with other owners. These […]

Post Matthew

Growing list of tips…

Watch Nassau EM on Facebook or Twitter…you will see current updates there.  If you map trips with a smartphone, Apple mapping and others show traffic and trip times based on real time. It color codes routes to show when the delay is shorter or roads are less blocked.    I’m posting […]

Sabbia…Great Addition to Fernandina

I just wanted to post something brief about the amazing lunch at Sabbia today.   The food was wonderful!   Every single item was more than I expected.  Prices were reasonable and the wait was brief.  Music was pleasant and the owners were personable.   We tried the gyro, slices of pizza and spanakopita.   

I highly recommend […]

Rarity of Water and Proximity

Waterfront is an unusual commodity.  Distance for a dock, depth of water, direction, no wake zones, distance to marinas or gas, and even location on or off a high traffic area, all change pricing or desirability.  Some properties have a little…and a handful have it all.

I’ve been selling property in Northeast Florida for the […]

Shrimp Festival 53, Fernandina and Lucky Place for Locals

Shrimp Festival is here again. 53 years! Growing from what I remember as shrimp boat races and a short trip to look at the art, into beauty contests, beard growing contests, staggering crowds and more, the growth fills the Historic District and the entire island. Like many locals, I’ll enjoy a visit to the event […]

Old Fashioned Service

Thriving for as long as I can remember….great hardware stores never die.

Definitely a contractor’s place to find anything missing on a job. Running out of wall space for “best of the best” awards.

There aren’t many places you can find old-fashioned service and everything….down to a single mail. Amelia Island Paint and […]
