New Park in Destin Finally Opens!

Earlier this month, Miss Destin 2021, Kaylie Sparks, cut the ribbon at the long-awaited NEW park in Destin, Captain Leonard Destin Park!

Hampered by the Pandemic, completion took much longer that planned, but now this beautiful 3+ acre park that overlooks the Choctawhatchee Bay has been transformed into the perfect destination for the family to spend some quality time.

Some features of the park include over 30 fountains with a center post shower, a Splash pad and Playground, Kayak and Paddle board launch, a pier, large picnic pavilion and restrooms with outdoor showers.

The park is built on the site that was part of the homestead of Captain Leonard Destin, the first person to settle in Destin in the mid-nineteenth century.  He also pioneered the local fishing industry.

Pack your lunch and load up the kids to see everything this beautiful park has to offer!

Walton Commissioners approve conservation of nearly 7,000 acres

Steps were taken at the last meeting of the Walton County Board of Commissioners for the conservation of almost 7,000 acres.

Unanimously approved, this will change the county's comprehensive land use plan map, which includes estate residential, general agriculture, large scale agriculture, public facilities and town center to the county's conservation classification.

The Commissioners have been working with the conservation non-profit organization, Nokuse Education, Inc., who recently purchased the 6,948 acres through a Florida Forever grant award.

Florida Forever is a Trust Fund program of the Department of Environmental Protection funded with real estate taxes.  Since 2001, the state has purchased more than 869,000 acres.

Navarre and Navarre Beach News!

The next time you're visiting, look for changes in Navarre and Navarre Beach!

For those heading over the Causeway to Navarre Beach, once it's installed, the first thing you'll see is a BRAND NEW, "Intelligent Traffic System" at the Gulf Boulevard intersection. This new system allows for the light to be managed in real-time depending on traffic flow.  For those who love Navarre Beach they've hated the slow, often-times standstill traffic that backs up as the day progresses.  This light will help alleviate the stop and go issues we all have experienced.  One day we hope there will be a better solution, but for now it's a start! 

Navarre, in the past several years, has been a fast growing community and below are just a few of the new businesses coming to the area:  

1.  Aldi Grocery - This 20,000+ Sq. Ft. buiding will be located at the intersection of Hwy 98 & Ortega St.  Plans have been submitted to the County as of April 1st, once plans are approved permits will be issued. 

2.  Also located in the complex where the Aldi will be constructed, will be a Dunkin' Donuts, where a Certificate of Occupance has been issued.  No opening date has been announced.

3.  Wynnehaven Plaza - Located at the former site of the First National Bank of Navarre near the Okaloosa-Santa Rosa County line.  This complex will include a Publix Grocery Store, Liquor Store...

Santa Rosa County takes 1st step in decade-long, $120 million Navarre Beach bridge project

Santa Rosa County Commissioners took the first step Thursday in what likely will be a decade-long, multimillion dollar process to build a new Navarre Beach Bridge, connecting the barrier island to the mainland and replacing the current bridge that has been declared "functionally obsolete." 

District 4 County Commissioner Dave Piech, who represents the Navarre area, has had the new Navarre bridge on his radar for the better part of the past year, but put off starting any official discussions about the project in the wake of the Pensacola Bay Bridge debacle.

Now, Piech said, it's time to start the process and get the ball rolling on a new Navarre Beach Bridge, "because, as you know, you can't just have a problem with a bridge and replace it overnight. We're living with that right now (with the Pensacola Bay Bridge)." 

The Pensacola Bay Bridge was struck by multiple Skanska construction barges during Hurricane Sally on Sept. 16 and has been out of commission ever since due to several missing spans and other structural issues. Officials have said it should reopen to motorists the week of Memorial Day.

The commissioners directed county staff Thursday...
