There are orange signs in front of wooded lots on Town Center Boulevard, near the new Navy Federal Credit Union, and along the east side of US 17 between Bald Eagle and Hibernia.
The signs are part of a public notice required by Clay County Planning Department to alert local residents of a zoning change request for the property. In this case, East West Partners, the developer of Eagle Harbor, is seeking to change the allowable uses of the property to include residential. The large parcel on Town Center is currently zoned for light industrial, consistent with the flex buildings across the street and adjacent to the library. Those along US 17 are currently slated for office use. Fleming Island already has many vacant commercial buildings and land and it is not likely that demand will increase in the foreseeable future to absorb the current inventory.
East West is seeking to change the zoning to allow residential. Since residential lots are mostly absorbed, the demand for new homes in Fleming Island could be relatively strong.
The link to the 43-page document is listed below if anyone is interested in getting more detailed information. The document includes proposed plats for each parcel.
