Grocery Store Approved for Vilano Beach

A proposed grocery store for Vilano Beach is hopefully coming soon. St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners today approved all non-zoning variance for the 3.64 acres in the Vilano Beach Town Center that is bounded by Coastal Highway, Vilano Road, and Poplar Avenue. The developers will now hopefully purchase the property from the FDIC and move forward with their plans to bring a much needed grocery store to Vilano Beach. The timeframe the commissioners agreed to was 30 months for the building permits to be approved.

Grocery Store Site Plan

The developers agreed to limit the signage heights to 24" on the front and back of buildings B, C, and D and to keep the signage height on the grocery story to 36".  More details about this proposal can be found on my previous blog. Additionally, more information on Vilano Beach's design guidelines can be found here.

My neighbors & I have been trying to get a grocery store in Vilano Beach for years. Hopefully, the end is in sight. Thanks to the many community volunteers that have helped to make this happen.
