The Comp Plan/LDC Working Group is a group of citizens who are working together to provide input on the Fernandina Beach Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code and then on the Nassau County Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code. These documents are critical for the future of Amelia Island. This group was formed by Amelia Tree Conservancy; however, its composition is broader and it represents a far broader scope of interests and concerns. We will soon be posting all of the Goals except for School Facilities and the Port. Because we were requested to provide our draft on this goal to the Planning Advisory Committee as they begin working on the Comp Plan, we are posting our Introduction and Goal 2 in advance of the other goals.
The Comp Plan/LDC Working Group does not perceive these drafts to be the final product of the Comprehensive Plan, but rather a working draft. Development of the Comprehensive Plan must be a process that brings together the world views of our diverse community of stakeholders. We represent some of these perspectives, but certainly not all. We look forward to discussing what we have developed thus far and look forward to your input.

- The Comp Plan/LDC Working Group is well aware of the problem of length in Goal 2. However, the above consideration and the following issues persuaded us to leave it as it is right now:
