Park Plan Gets Input at Meeting but Funding Not Set for St. Nicholas Work


McCann, Luke, The Florida Times Union


Southside residents were asked to envision what renovations

they'd like for St. Nicholas Park if money were no object,

because there isn't any just yet.

City Councilman Howard Dale's town meeting June 25 at Englewood

High School included Bill Potter, director of the city's

Department of Parks and Recreation. Potter talked with Southside

residents about what the park at Spring Park and Stanley Street

can look like when money becomes available.

Until a month ago, $30,000 was to be spent by the City Council

to renovate the park, said Dale, who represents the district

that includes the park. No date had been set for when the money

would be available.

Mayor John Delaney's office had come up with a bill to spend

$2.5 million left over from a series of bond issues starting in

1988 to fix parks in Duval County. But in April, the council

voted 17-2 against the mayor's plan, which would have seen most

of the money spent on the Northside and Westside.

Instead, the council voted to divide the money among council

districts.

Dale said after the meeting that he backed the mayor's version

because it looked out for countywide priorities. Now, he has

$78,000 for his district, though he declined to comment on how

it would be spent. He anticipates that the minimum of $30,000 it

will cost to fix St. Nicholas Park will be found soon.

A meeting with Potter to look at the park's priorities will

hopefully take place by the end of September, Dale said.

Richard Mette, president of the Spring Park Neighborhood

Association, said at the town meeting that attention should be

given to older parks in the city. If the city really wants to

bring people back to its core areas, these parks must be given

as much attention as parks in newer areas of town such as

Mandarin, he said. …
