City Council approved the design phase for the multiuse trail on April 2, 2019, which allowed staff to move forward with hiring a contractor for the design and placement of the trail. Staff then presented the schedule for public hearings for the project on July 21, 2020, and the two October dates were approved by Council.

Once completed, this trail will extend the existing recreational trail in Fleming Island, which ends at Harbor Road, through Green Cove Springs city limits to the south end of the city.
