The upside to the high HOA montly fees in Artisan Lakes with lawn and pest included is they cover the whole neighborhood. Everyone will be getting the grass cut and sprayed regularly. In Florida you basically have to have a lawn service spray monthly to keep the grass looking good (they have access to stronger chemicals than what you buy at HD) and if your neighbor isn't doing theirs, bugs and weeds will creep over to your yard....never ending battle.

And it's not like this is going to stop with Silverleaf, there are dozens of other parcels already planned for more housing.

On the corner of St Johns Pkwy and Race Track Rd there is a new strip mall.....great, right?!? Well, thus far it's made up of the following:

1. Self Storage (that looks like Shawshank Prison)
2. Nail Salon
3. Eyebrow Threading Salon (not even sure WTH that is)
4. Gas station
5. Some italian ice cream store

It is clear to me that these developers and the County Commissioners simply do not care to be thoughtful when it comes to growth. This garbage strip mall is a great example of the junk that continues to come to our area.
This is just false. The traffic on 210 is actually better now that they have widened it by 95 and opened 9B.

As I'm sure you're aware, 9B will be extended and a new bridge will be built across the river in a few years.

There is still a dearth of retail in northern St. Johns county. Given that complaining about gas stations and a new storage locker seems silly to me.
