City Council welcomes “Cottages on Cove” and makes Spring Park home to Food Truck Friday and upcoming City yoga program

Oct. 17, 2018, Green Cove Springs – City Council approved requested land use and zoning changes for “Cottages on Cove,” a residential development of 11 single-family homes, during its meeting on Oct. 16.

RaeLynn Homes, LLC, contractor for the development, requested to amend the future land use map for the property from Residential Low Density to Residential Medium Density, as well as rezone the property to a Planned Unit Development. “Cottages on Cove” will be located at 915 Bay Street, and take up a block surrounded by Tucker Street, Cove Street, Bay Street, and CSX railroad tracks and the Green Cove Springs Police Department building along Melrose Avenue.

Homes in the proposed development will be valued around $150,000, offering housing within the price range of young families interested in moving to Green Cove Springs.

Spring Park will also see more activity as City Council approved to move Food Truck Friday to the park through the end of 2019, allowing alcohol during the event and designating the City as an official sponsor. Beer and wine brought in coolers will be allowed in a marked “cooler zone” in Spring Park between 5 and 9 p.m. only during Food Truck Friday event dates.

Yoga classes will soon be held in the Pool Pavilion in Spring Park. City Council approved the newest addition to Parks and Recreation programming. Director Glee Glisson encourages citizens to keep an eye out for announcements as soon as the classes have a set schedule and instructor.
