Navarre Park Renovations may be extended past the Deadline
Possible Renovation Delays Coming to Navarre Park
**UPDATE** - On December 9th Commissioners will be asked to add 43 days on to the deadline for completion on the First Phase. If approved it will change the deadline to January 28th.
An extension may be coming for the renovations to be complete at the Navarre Park. Faced with weather and supply delays its been a challenging year. Phase 1 was originally expected to be completed in September. The contractor was forced to put a change order in and, with the Board of Commissioner's approval, the date has been extended until December 17th.
Once complete there will be 20 more parking spaces, a new splash pad, playground, 3 shade structures and a kid-friendly restroom.
The Permitting process for work to begin on the Seawall and Dock is moving forward, as they are under a separate contract than the other improvements to the park.
Two abandoned boats in the Santa Rosa Sound have been an issue that has been slowly winding through the courts for the removal process.
Stay tuned for an announcement once the re-opening date has been scheduled.
