It was announced today by Secretary of the Navy Donald Winter that one of the nuclear carriers in the Atlantic fleet will be moving to the Mayport Naval Station in Jacksonville, Florida. This was great news for the Northeast Florida/Southeast Georgia area.
This will mean thousands of new jobs for the area as well as a boon to the real estate market. These Navy men women not only will need homes and apartments but the local economy will get a nice boast. The carrier yet to be named has an on board crew of over three thousand.
St. Marys, GA where I live has a Navy Sub Base and is only about 30 miles up the road from Mayport.
