    Dear Mr. Bagby,


    On behalf of Seahaven Consulting, I am writing you today to state our intention to end our contract with Walton County effective March 31, 2015. We have appreciated the opportunity to serve as the Coastal Management Consultant for Walton County since 2007.

    When we were hired, the goal was to secure a federal shore protection project for all of Walton County's beaches. The Walton County Hurricane & Storm Damage Reduction Project was federally-authorized by Congress in 2014, permit responses are almost complete, local funding is available, and state and federal funding is being pursued.
    All phases to date have received all necessary funding for completion. We believe that Walton County is in a great position to move forward with this project, and it is now in the hands of the Walton County Board of County Commissioners and the residents.

    Its been a great fifteen years and I will be eternally thankful for my time working with Walton County, the TDC and the many residents who I have gotten to know. Some of which will be lifelong friends.

    Dotty Nist wrote a wonderful article with the details on what I am up too about a month or so ago. We'll still be around every once in a while. So, in the words of a Seahaven's most famous resident....
