Agreement in DeBary marina fight means no marina on St. Johns

Published 11-20-2007
After months of litigation and negotiation, with boatloads of money spent for attorneys and consultants, a preliminary agreement made at a meeting in Tallahassee Nov. 15 will allow developer Joe Krzys of St. Johns Partners to proceed with development of Country Estates at River Bend in DeBary — but without a marina.

The environmentalists' major concern has been protecting manatees that travel that stretch of river, between the bridge at U.S. Highway 17-92 and Blue Spring, on their way to the springs. The stretch of river is part of the Wekiva Aquatic Preserve.
