Northeast Florida Roundup
PARC Group developing eTown, a zero-energy-ready master-planned community
With half its acreage set aside as a reserve, eTown will include walking trails, paths for electric carts and about 1,400 homes in neighborhoods named after famous inventors. Among the neighborhoods: Kettering, a collection of 40 to 50 homes that will be marketed as zero-energy-ready, meaning efficient enough for their annual electricity use to be offset by rooftop solar panels. Plus news from around Northeast Florida: Republican Lenny Curry won reelection as the mayor of Jacksonville, garnering 58% of the vote; Jacksonville-based VyStar Credit Union paid $5 million for a seven-story, 75,744-sq.-ft. building next to its new headquarters downtown.
