The Amelia Island Convention & Visitors Bureau recently launched MemoriesMaking.com to gather public input for two strategic initiatives designed to enhance the value of the county’s shared assets for the benefit of the entire community. The Beach Park Harmonization and the Tourism and Destination Development projects both have community surveys open now through June 30. Residents can visit the website to learn more and complete two separate surveys designed to give 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 these two important 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.
