Innovation in Flagler County, Florida

Flagler County is the next county south of the Jacksonville Metro area. They have developed an innovative program that is addressing the national talent concern. See article: http://www.expansionsolutionsmagazine.com/010218_flaglerco

In about 1971, I was called to New York to initiate a project with my firm RS&H to develop a master plan for about 100,000 acres that has now become Palm Coast in Flagler County. There are now 100,000 people in Flagler county. I retired from RS&H in 1996. See link for current RS&H with over 50 offices: http://rsandh.com/
