It seems we’re finally getting some answers to questions created by the dispute between Raydient Places + Properties (Raydient) and Nassau County.
This is the same dispute in which Florida Politics chronicled the series of public records violations, Florida’s Government in the Sunshine Law violations, and the costly “war” against Raydient waged by those in power in Nassau County — all of which will carry a hefty price tag for taxpayers.
The Circuit Court of the 4th Judicial District weighed in on June 10 regarding the matter, specifically the argument of who is responsible for funding and maintaining parks within the East Nassau Community Planning Area (ENCPA).
Circuit Judge James H. Daniel granted partial summary judgment for Count VI in favor of Raydient and the ENCPA, stating “the obligation to comply with levels of service for parks and recreational facilities under the Comprehensive Plan remains with Nassau County and the BOCC.”
Earlier this year, Florida Politics took a deep investigative dive into why Raydient ultimately decided to file a complaint against Nassau County, asking the court to weigh in on who, in fact, is responsible for the construction and maintenance of parks and recreation facilities within the ENCPA.
