On November the 3rd CoOS submitted a variance request to the City of Jacksonville Beach requesting that we be allowed to build within 10 feet of the City’s public driveway to the lift station that is contained within our lots.  We expect a ruling by December 15.

Our Civil Engineer, Ed Goodson, is preparing a site development plan to be submitted to the City and St. John’s Water Management District after the ruling on the variance is made, estimated to be before Christmas, 2015. We expect two iterations of the plan, possible approval in early March of 2016.

We have met with our Architect, Ron Scalisi to agree on a contract to provide necessary services to supervise the building of our chapel and to help us to make a decision on a the most economic direction to take regarding the construction of our Fellowship Hall and Administrative building.  We expect to sign the contract by 20 November.
