Gov. Rick Scott announces plan for $3 million ‘jack hut’ in Weeki Wachee

WEEKI WACHEE, Florida — Gov. Rick Scott has announced plans for a $3 million personal “jack hut” to be added to the previously announced Nature Coast Experience project.

Scott’s new blueprints include a two-story, 2,400-square-foot masterbatorium, where the governor said he will begin making important decisions and one day retire to.

“Sometimes it makes sense to get away from the hectic pace of the state capitol and crank out a few rounds in silence while overlooking the Gulf of Mexico,” Scott said. “With Tallahassee only a short state-funded plane trip away, I plan on making this my go-to spot for stressful times and negotiating with visiting dignitaries and political power players. This will be a Camp David for me and my buds.”

The Nature Coast experience was first announced last week when Scott’s office unveiled the plans for the tourism and education center. The state pledged $3 million with Hernando County offering to match it dollar for dollar. The addition of the “jack hut” will be similarly funded.

Hernando County Tourism Procurement Planning Commission Director Michelle Gilliard said the addition would offer visitors a one-of-a-kind experience.

“If you visit right at sunset and stand in the legally designated area just west of the parking lot, you might be able to catch a glimpse of the governor ‘signing a bill’ at that very window,’” Gilliard said. “You can’t say that about any other state park.”
