Nassau County Board of Commissioners
Press Release
May 10, 2022

Public encouraged to complete two online surveys regarding Beach Park Harmonization, and Tourism and Destination Development initiatives

 The Nassau County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is utilizing a new website, MemoriesMaking.com, to gather public input for its Beach Park Harmonization and Tourism and Destination Development projects, two strategic initiatives designed to enhance the value of the county’s shared assets for the benefit of the entire community. Now through June 30, residents can visit the website to complete two separate surveys designed to give them an easy way to provide input on each project, thereby ensuring all community voices are heard in the planning process. The website was developed by the Amelia Island Convention and Visitors Bureau (AICVB), which is assisting the Nassau County BOCC with the two projects.

The Beach Park Harmonization Project is part of the Beach Partnership and seeks to harmonize and enhance the visitor experience at Amelia Island’s seven main beach parks: North Beach, Main Beach, Seaside Park, Peters Point, Burney Park, Scott Road Access Point, and the South Road Access. Building on previous studies and existing guidelines, the Beach Harmonization Project aims to modernize and better equip these parks to serve local communities as well as visitors. In addition to the online survey, the community is invited to attend an Open House on Wednesday, May 18, at 5 p.m. at the Nassau County BOCC Chambers (96135 Nassau Place) regarding the Beach Park Harmonization Project.

The “Nassau Next” Tourism and Destination Development Project will create a comprehensive roadmap for the future of Nassau County and its tourism economy. Positioning new areas of the county will help capture a greater share of tourism spending while maintaining momentum on Amelia Island. This project will deliver a clear 10-year plan for creating jobs, expanding the economy, and improving quality of life for visitors and residents.

In partnership with the Nassau County BOCC and AICVB are the Amelia Island Tourist Development Council (AITDC) and two expert consultants, EDSA and JLL. A planning and urban design firm with more than 60 years of experience, EDSA is assisting with the Beach Park Harmonization Project. The JLL Travel and Tourism practice has robust expertise in destination development, tourism strategies and execution, and is assisting with the Nassau County Tourism Strategy and Destination Project.
