About Clay County
We are proud to welcome you to our county located along the banks of the St. Johns River in Northeast Florida.
Located in one of the nation’s fastest growing regions, Clay County is a diverse mixture of suburban and rural areas spread over 592 square miles that includes 46 square miles of fresh water lakes. Plus, the northward-flowing St. Johns River forms the entirety of the county’s eastern boundary. Talk about views and opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors!
We are located within commuting distance to Jacksonville to our north and to Gainesville to our south, but our growing county also presents plenty of economic and employment opportunities right here. Clay County includes unincorporated Middleburg, Fleming Island, Oakleaf and four municipalities – Orange Park (adjacent to the Duval County line), Green Cove Springs (seat of the county’s government), Penney Farms, and Keystone Heights. Clay County is the 26th largest county in Florida. Our county boasts a low crime rate, superior schools, a highly skilled workforce, retail centers and a burgeoning economy.
Our members proudly serve the citizens of Clay County and are proud of this agency. They’ve chosen Clay County not only as their place of employment but also as their home – the place in which they’ll live and raise their families.
