Letter to the editor


“If you build it, they will come.” Is this what Jed Davis, grandson of J.E. Davis, and his family thought with the Florida 9B project (Nocatee development)?

When interviewed, Jed Davis stated, “We as a family try to be good citizens of Jacksonville.”

Please try harder. With approximately 27,000 acres owned by the family, could not more roads on open land be constructed to and from Nocatee to reach other highways?

A1A in St. Johns County is a way of life for thousands living off A1A. A beach community should never become a major highway. Please don’t allow this to happen. Do the right thing as a good, caring citizen.
