Port receives master plan update grant

St. Joe will provide GIS mapping and graphics assistance and the Florida Department of Transportation will assist with transportations issues pertaining to the port.

“The critical thing for us right now is moving forward on this stakeholders’ meeting,” said Port Authority chairman Leonard Costin. “I’d like people to know this is an important meeting.”

As the process hits milestones, such as the stakeholders’ meeting, the grant funding will be disbursed. With the grant Pitts and Nadine Lee, who have worked at the Port Authority more than a decade will be able to draw some salary.

Pitts was appreciative but noted the overall goal was larger than any salary.

“What we’re doing here is an opportunity,” Pitts said. “Everybody here is trying to work together to make something happen here.”

SIS designation

Pitts reported optimism regarding the port’s application to extend by at least three years its designation as part of Florida’s SIS.
