Updates for Navarre and Navarre Beach
Updates for Navarre & Navarre Beach
During a recent Navarre Beach Leaseholders and Residents Association Meeting, Commissioner Dave Piech provided updates and confirmations for Navarre & Navarre Beach.
Improvements will soon begin along Gulf Blvd. on Navarre Beach after the county accepted a bid from a local landscaping company.
The County has applied for a Grant to put a bike path along Panhandle Trail that will connect Hwy 98 to the NYSA fields and Navarre High School.
Commissioners will not approve any additional extensions for finishing construction at the Navarre Park after they previously extended it another 43 days.
A new Hotel on Navarre Beach is making progress to begin construction on 3 lots where the Old Barracudas was located on Gulf Blvd. Although it's not known yet what the name of the hotel will be, it is assured to be a higher end property. The hotel will consist of 210 rooms with half of the rooms dedicated for a short term stay and the other half will be used for longer term stays.
For those living in the area, you've seen 2 derelict boats floating in the Santa Rosa Sound. Notice has been given to the boat's owners and now the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conseration Commission needs to give approval to the county for removal of both boats, which will hopefully be in the next few months.
The new Courthouse being built is expected to be completed in early 2022 and the opening should be in late Spring as long as there aren't any delays.
The Commissioner confirmed that both Buffalo Wild Wings and a Wendy's are coming to Navarre along Hwy 98. It has been rumored that a national coffee company may soon be coming to the area but confirmation has not been made.
