St. Joe pitches 110,000-acre development plan

The document addresses in detail potential impacts on the environment, transportation, water supply, stormwater management, transportation, community facilities and other areas the development could have over the 50-year period. 

Gonzalez said the counties will approach the process as a comprehensive plan amendment and vote on whether they want to transmit the application to the state agencies for review.

“Once we can resolve all the issues that the state has, that’s when we’ll tell the county we’re ready to schedule adoption hearings,” Gonzalez said.

Once the long-term master plan is in place, St. Joe still will be required to submit detailed-specific area plans (DSAPs) for county approval before beginning any construction.

“It’s not going to happen fast,” Brady said. “This is the framework under which pieces will be approved or not approved.”
