Governor Appoints County Commissioner to State Committee; Cyndi Stevenson Will Work to Streamline Government Services

With the Nocatee development and other explosive growth in northern St. Johns County, and the interaction of government forces that usually accompanies it, a local leader has been appointed to a state post that could help bring order to the situation.

County Commissioner Cyndi Stevenson was appointed this month by Gov. Charlie Crist to serve on a state legislative committee designed to streamline multiple governmental services to growing areas of Florida.

Stevenson, whose district includes all of the northwest down to International Golf Parkway, Nocatee and other parts of the Palm Valley area, will serve on the Florida Legislative Committee on Intergovernmental Relations for two years along with other gubernatorial appointees and Florida senators and state representatives.

Nocatee is a vast network of construction planned for 15,000 acres. Multiple government agencies will continue to be involved in major transportation projects for the development, Stevenson said.

Race Track Road eventually will hook up to Florida 9A, which would provide a main outlet for most of the Nocatee residents who would commute to Jacksonville. …
