    Earlier this summer, the Walton County TDC was given direction from the Walton County BCC to develop capital improvement plans and schedule public workshops for the four purchased properties, including: Driftwood, Highway 393, Highway 283 and Eastern Lake Road. A comprehensive plan then be presented to the Walton County BCC, which will include recommendations from staff and the public for the best use of each site.

    Please see below for the schedule of public workshops pertaining to the capital improvement projects. These workshops are open to the public, and all residents, visitors or business owners of South Walton are encouraged to attend. All public workshops will be hosted at the South Walton Annex, located at 31 Coastal Centre Blvd, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

    Per the Walton County BCC, staff was given direction to develop capital improvement plans and schedule public workshops for the four purchased properties, including:
    • The Driftwood Road parking project is on a 1.119-acre parcel located at 76 Driftwood Road in Miramar Beach.
    • The County Road 393 parcel is 2.3-acres and located north of Gulf Place Town Center on the west side of County Road 393.
    • The County Road 283 parcel, also referred to as “Grayton Grand” parking project, is 6.995-acres and located on the eastern portion of County Road 283 South, across from the Shoppes at Grayton. This property has been leveled and improved with more than 300 designated parking spots currently used by visitors to Grayton Beach, employees and patrons, as well as shuttle location for Seaside and other nearly businesses.
    • The Eastern Lake Road parking project consists of two neighboring parcels, located at 392 and 406 Eastern Lake Road in the Seagrove neighborhood. 392 Eastern Lake Road, .215-acres, is located just south of Williams Street on Eastern Lake Road. 406 Eastern Lake Road, a .278-acre parcel, is located just next door (east) of 392 Eastern Lake Road.
    Currently, all public workshops for these proposed parking projects have been postponed and updates will be provided at a later date.
