One of Jupiter Island’s most surprising facets is its preservation of natural resources. In fact, after the residential development of secluded estates, the primary use of land is conservation/preservation. The few commercial land uses within the Town exist primarily to serve residents. The remaining vacant land is designated for single-family residential or recreational and conservation uses. Image By Clinton & Charles Robertson from RAF Lakenheath via Wikimedia Commons
