Long Creek Nature Preserve Groundbreaking Ceremony Postponed

The Packers and 49ers played a great game in sub-zero temperatures, but Palm Coast postpones its Long Creek Groundbreaking ceremony because of cold weather.

Palm Coast, FL – January 6, 2014 – The groundbreaking ceremony planned for Tuesday, Jan. 7, for Long Creek Nature Preserve construction is being postponed due to cold weather conditions.

The groundbreaking ceremony is being rescheduled for 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14. The public is invited. The Palm Coast City Council workshop, to be held at City Offices, will commence immediately after the groundbreaking ceremony.

The groundbreaking ceremony will be held at the Long Creek Nature Preserve site on Palm Harbor Parkway, adjacent to the College Waterway Bridge. Attendees are asked to park at the Palm Coast Yacht Club, 1 Yacht Club Drive, on the other side of the College Waterway Bridge. A shuttle across the bridge will be provided.

The event will include remarks by Mayor Jon Netts, Archeologist and Project Consultant Dana Ste.Claire, and Palm Coast Senior Environmental Planner Denise Bevan. Light refreshments will be served.

Phase I construction will begin soon and will take approximately six months to complete. Phase 1 improvements will include construction of a path and boardwalk to new canoe/kayak launches into Long Creek and College Waterway, installation of shoreline stabilization along College Waterway, construction of a fishing pier along College Waterway with floating dock for boat mooring, and an entrance to the site with a parking area.

    Long Creek Nature Preserve

    I read an article in the news paper and also on line about the Long Creek Nature Preserve which is under construction. My question is this…for the new residents of Palm Coast why can’t they give an address for this site and others mentioned in the Newspaper and online. As new residents we are learning our way around Palm Coast and would like to be a part of the Palm Coast activities. It would make it easier for us to get involved if a physical address were given in the article.

    Please think about the newcomers to the city of Palm Coast and don’t assume that we all know how to get to these places.
