St. Augustine’s neighborhoods are as varied as its history and its architecture that reflects that history.

Neighborhood Council a Continuing Success

With its December meeting, the St. Augustine Neighborhood Council passed its six month mark and is certainly well on its way to being firmly established.

Comprised of delegates from each neighborhood association, the council meets to discuss issues which affect their individual neighborhood associations, exchange ideas on neighborhood activities, and discuss citywide issues of interest.

In a presentation to the City Commission April 14 of last year, a steering committee made up of local residents interested in forming a neighborhood council, stated their goals as "building a relationship in and among neighborhood associations that will enable residents to enhance their own quality of life with programs and resources. It is about encouraging residents to take charge of their own destiny rather than carping about how government doesn’t do anything for them. It is about building a structure that encourages residents to take responsibility."

Those goals have certainly been met and in some instances surpassed.

At this time, there are six established neighborhood associations with another two in the formative stages. (Click here for a complete listing)

Membership in each association includes some of the original steering committee members along with a growing number of new members who have embraced the mission of taking an active part of their neighborhoods.

At the center of the associations is the Neighborhood Council and its offices located at City Hall.

Resource Library Available to All

Available to all city residents is an extensive library of reference material in the Neighborhood Council Office located on the first floor of City Hall, 75 King St. Documents include the design concepts for the Visitor’s Information Center Intermodal Transportation Facility, the Entrance Corridor Guidelines, St. Augustine City Code and the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

While all of these materials have always been available, the Neighborhood Council’s easy to get to location makes it much more convenient for residents to access this information.

The research library is available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

New Associations Forming Now

The Neighborhood Council Coordinator, Cathy DuPont, is available to meet with residents interested in forming a neighborhood association. Sample bylaws and organization structures are available through her office as well as contacts from existing associations who will provide helpful information.

Cathy may be reached by calling 904-825-1053 between 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday through Friday, by mail at P. O. Box 210, St. Augustine, FL 32085-0210 or by email at cdupont@ci.st-augustine.fl.us.
