The St Johns County Ocean Fishing Pier future is in serious question. Call St Johns County Commissioners at 904-209-0655 to voice your support or you can click here for all the numbers of the Commissioners and contact info. Let them know you saw this on Saltchef. I am a resident of St Johns County and I have watched how they can find all sorts of your money for new roads, sewers, drainage, oversized county buildings and etc. St Johns County has serious issues with keeeping up maintenance of existing infrastructure though, too focused on getting big and the quality of life IS suffering as a result.
Once the pier is closed it will most likely never come back!
Tons of oversized developements will be named after the animals they chased away!
Check back in 10 years and see what the quality of life in St Johns County is like.
