Thanks for all this information. Nice to know what is happening in our area.
Would be interested in an article regarding the impact of three subdivisions currently marketing single family homes on the island. There is one on Sadler Road,
one on S 14th and one on Parkway with also entrance from Bailey Road.
I can’t recall their names, but they appears to be lots of homes in all three.
Would be interesting to know total units in those subdivisions, impact of all homes sold and occupied. Seems that if all become residences this would impact the number of cars on our island, as most households have at least 2 vehicles.
The impact of that population could affect our one access to depart the island in an emergency.
Thanks to all at Fernandina Observes for all the interesting articles.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
