If we build it, they will come ... so we are told.

South Walton may get a sports complex.

The proposed complex is the idea of land-owner and businessman M.C. Davis of Freeport . Davis owns approximately 113 acres on U.S. Highway 98, two miles east of County Road 395 and wants to sell it.

The man who founded the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center approached the former Walton County Tourist Development Council director Dawn Moliterno a couple of months ago with the idea and was encouraged to take it before the County Commissioners , which he will do June 11.

Davis believes the land would be a perfect spot for a sports complex, which he believes South Walton needs, and that is the cornerstone of his sales pitch.

If public feedback at a workshop held Wednesday morning is any indication, the community also seems to think it's a good idea.

As a selling tool for his property, Davis has done extensive clearing on the site, surveying, and research into the type of sports complex that he thinks should go there, all of which he will present to the commissioners.
