UNF Hosts “The Dredging of the St. Johns River”

The University of North Florida will host “The Dredging of the St. Johns River: A Town Hall Meeting on the Proposal to Deepen the River” from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, March 9, at the Adam W. Herbert University Center.

The purpose of the town hall meeting is to give the citizens of Jacksonville the opportunity to engage and participate in discussion and deliberation over the proposal to dredge/deepen the St. Johns River for larger container vessels.

There will be no formal presentations, and participants can comment or ask questions about the proposal.

The forum will be moderated by Dr. Georgette Dumont, UNF assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration.

When public dollars are being used to modify a public resource, it’s important that the public are fully informed and have an opportunity to participate in the dialogue and debate over an issue that will impact the larger community,” said Dr. David Jaffee, UNF sociology professor and event organizer.

Representatives from various stakeholder organizations have been invited to attend, so that they can answer questions and respond to public comments.
