First Step in St. Marks Growth Plan

Posted 6/19/2008
For the first time in a formal meeting-- the Wakulla County Commissioners met with the St. Marks City Commissioners to look at the future of St. Marks. The small fishing community is one of the oldest cities in Florida, dating back to the late 1520's. It was an industrial town, but now all that's left are the vacant buildings. Through a Community Redevelopment Agency, the city hopes to bring the town back to life.

It's where the Wakulla River and the St. Marks River comes together and it should be absolutely a gem. A tourist destination for all of north Florida and we want to make that happen again," said Wakulla County Commissioner Ed Brimner.
