  • Daryl Joseph – Director of Parks and Recreation sent us the prices of the recommended improvements for the park.  There was discussion on which ones were most desirable. Both the Outdoor Fitness Circuit and scoreboard and football field were suggested. Motion was passed to table the discussion in order to do more research on LISC matching the funds to potentially double the $$ and there was talk was of artificial turf on the field as an option.  David Lass offered to bring back information next meeting regarding other LISC/NLF assisted parks in Jacksonville.


  • Gary brought up solar power for our neighborhood and we talked of possibilities. Tom will do more talking to city council about this as well as JEA.  JEA has a solar smart program and the idea was discussed about Panama Park becoming the first 100% solar powered neighborhood. People’s JEA bills would be the same but this neighborhood would get credit for funding the solar panels used by JEA to supply our electricity.
