Plans for Properties 160 Acres and Smaller
The Office Of
Environmental Services has received the following land management
plans for properties 160 acres and smaller in size. Acquisition and
Restoration Council (ARC) members who wish to have any of these
plans placed on a formal ARC agenda for discussion should contact
ARC Staff Director, prior to the date indicated below. Please note
that at least three ARC members must make the request for a plan for
a property smaller than 160 acres in size to be scheduled for an ARC
agenda. If we do not receive three requests by the stated deadline
to schedule a plan for consideration at an ARC meeting, the plan
will be approved.
West Jacksonville Connector, Duval County (Sublease No. 4456-01)
The 112-acre West Jacksonville Connector/Brandy Branch property is located on Beaver Street in western Duval County. The park includes wet flatwoods, bottomland forest and strand swamp natural communities. The property will provide trailhead facilities for a planned regional trail system that will connect other conservation lands in the area, including Jennings State Forest, the Cecil Conservation Area, and the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail. The park will include parking, nature trails, and a pedestrian bridge across Brandy Branch.
The Division of State Lands will approve this plan unless three ARC members request that the Division place it on a future Council agenda. The ARC request deadline is May 22, 2015.
