Rally to Protect HP-5

Residents of St Augustine had a peaceful protest on Saturday July 1st from 11:00am -1:00pm along West Castillo Drive to bring to the peoples attention that the San Marco Hotel PUD threatens St Augustine Historic Preservation 5 (HP-5). Those present at the protest felt that rezoning this area would threaten it and the north city, allowing commercial expansion into that area and threatening the heritage of the city. They felt that neighborhood preservation should be the priority and not its commercialization.
