2 ATLANTIC BEACH

SIGN ORDINANCE IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Atlantic Beach businesses have until June 1, 2015, to comply with the city's 2002 sign ordinance. City commissioners have set that deadline so they can give further thought to the ordinance, which required businesses to replace large or tall signs with monument signs by Jan. 1, 2015.

3 JACKSONVILLE BEACH

BEACHES MUSEUM SEEKS HELP

The Beaches Museum and History Park has begun a campaign to relocate the oldest remaining house in the area to its historical park at 381 Beach Blvd. The 1873 Oesterreicher-McCormick Homestead is a rare example of Duval County's "cracker" architecture, and was donated by the J.T. and Jean McCormick family. It will be moved from its location on the McCormick Ranch in Palm Valley and join other historic structures in the park, including a chapel, old Pablo Station Post Office, Florida East Coast Railway Mayport Depot and others. The moving cost is $200,000, and fundraising is underway. For more, BeachesMuseum.org, or (904) 241-5657, ext.113.
