    Palm Coast is growing, so we need to be smart abou

    We should definitely have widened the pc pkwy a long time ago. When I go to work in the am and take I-95, going westbound over the highway on PC Pkwy is always backed up, so obviously it needs to be widened because I don’t think the traffic will lessen in the future. And 3 lanes each direction would not make it wider than I-95, so get your facts straight "old palm coast" because, we need this for the future and Palm Coast. The town will never be the "old Palm Coast" and small town it was in the past, so deal with it and allow our beautiful city to grow in smart ways or just leave. Keeping an already congested road the same will not help the problem obviously, so widening it is out best and only option, and will improve the quality of driving, and reduce traffic, their for improving the quality of life, so I am all for it.

    Brigadeer General Jose Hernandezs St. Josephs Plan

    Local historian John Clegg “The History of Flagler County” reported that a number of Spanish grants were purchased by Joseph M. Hernandez whose plantations called St. Joseph, Bella Vista and Mala Compra (that translates as ‘bad purchase’ in Spanish) figure strongly in Flagler County’s history. St. Joseph Plantation had a sugar mill which was near a prior St. Joseph Mission, a Indian mission run by the Francisican Friars. Mr. Clegg said the foundation of the sugar mill existed until the time of the Palm Coast development. Today there is “St. Joseph Plaza” near the traffic heavy paved section of Old Kings Road.
    The sugar mill was reported to be in the area of 45 Florida Park Drive today near Old Kings Road. A record of the research to locate this Mission is located at the Flagler Beach Museum.
    Mala Compra today exists within a Flagler County Park near A1A and was explored and relics
    shown in a library display. Some relics also exist in the Flagler Beach Museum.

    ————–>It can be said that the streaming auto traffic that now passes Palm Coast Parkway and Old
    Kings Road is also intersecting near one of the most historic areas in Flagler County., 1. ———————

    Major plantation locations included Mala Compra, St. Joseph, New Hartford, Bulow, Dunlawton, Putnam, Addison, Bunch, Oswald and Smyrna. There were also a multitude of smaller holdings along the route. Many of the Spanish land grants, which extended from St. Augustine to New Smyrna used Old Kings road as a reference point, it was sometimes called “public road.” These grants indicated that Old Kings Road pretty much followed the original British tract.

    National Heritage Area (parts of Palm Coast / Flagler County / St. Johns County)
    ‘…Stakeholders receive help to achieve their own goals for resource enhancement, conservation, and promotion…’

    ‘…Through the National Park Service, up to $10 million in 50-percent match funding is available to a National Heritage Area over a period of 15 years
    For every $1 of federal match funding, the existing National Heritage Areas have leveraged an average of $9 in other funding. Portions of this funding direct, indirect and induced–goes to local businesses.
    Sustainable management of heritage tourism and nature tourism brings long-term economic benefits to designated regions while protecting cultural and natural resources….’
