A reconnaissance-level survey will help identify elements that create a neighborhood's particular character.
The Florida Division of Historical Resources awarded the City a $30,000 grant in July 2010 to complete this survey for the City limits, excluding the Downtown and Old Town Historic Districts, which have been previously surveyed.
In addition to identifying neighborhoods that could one day be historic, a reconnaissance-level survey in Fernandina Beach will also identify development patterns, history of neighborhoods, and architectural and landscape elements of neighborhoods that create a neighborhood’s particular character. This survey will assist the Planning Department in neighborhood preservation, which was identified by the City’s Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) as a major issue.
