The Amelia Island Convention and Visitors Bureau has released two community surveys related to 1) beach park harmonization; and 2) tourism and destination development initiatives.
Nassau County beaches are enjoyed by ALL residents. As such, it is important that ALL residents respond to these surveys to make their voices heard during the planning process.
The surveys will remain open through June 30th.
Initiative #1: Beach Park Harmonization Project
The CUVB seeks to harmonize and enhance the visitor's experience at Amelia Island's seven main beach parks: North Beach, Main Beach, Seaside Park, Peters Point, Burney Park, Scott Road Beach Access, and the Southend Beach Access. Building on previous studies and existing guidelines, the Beach Harmonization Project aims to modernize and better equip these parks to better serve the local community, as well as visitors to the area.
A presentation was made Katie Poppel of the firm EDSA at the May 18, 2022 Board of County Commissioners meeting. Ms. Poppel stated, "The objective of this is the idea of harmonization. How do these 7 parks fit together and create that cohesive space? A space where a resident or visitor can visit any park and find a set of "pedestrian comfort" enhancements including seating, waste receptacles, pavilions, beach access". The May 18th presentation can be found here with the presentation listed under "Tab C".
Initiative #2: The "Nassau Next" Tourism and Destination Development Project
This 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.
