The District contains approximately 314 acres and is located south of International Golf Parkway and east of North Francis Road in St. Johns County. On October 6, 2014, the District received a Final Judgment from the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court of Florida validating its Special Assessment Bonds in an amount not to exceed $25,000,000, with the assistance of HGS attorney Katie Buchanan. The District anticipates issuing bonds in early to mid-2015 and intends to use the bond proceeds to fund the construction and acquisition of public infrastructure improvements.
