Jackson County (Fla.) Commissioners on Tuesday (July 26) accepted a grant of up to $106,500 to pay for the design and development of plans for a campground/RV park at the Blue Springs Recreational Area that would provide up to 36 RV/tent/cabin sites, according to the Jackson County Floridian.

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity grant will reimburse the county for the work done by the contractor hired for the design of the project, David H. Melvin (DHM) Consulting Engineers. The county authorized DHM to proceed in the same meeting in which the grant agreement was accepted.

Tasks will include site analysis, survey work, a permitting summary, preparation of bid documents associated with the realization of the project, providing an opinion on its probable costs and providing a planimetric model.
