A complex pitch: M.C. Davis proposes land sale for sports complex

Published: Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 04:18 PM.

The proposed amphitheater would be twice the size of the Seaside Amphitheater with a similar grass seating area.

Lammon said they have already been contacted by producers of the 30A Songwriters Festival, as they are interested in possibly using it.

"People who love arts and culture stay longer and spend more," said Lammon.   

Davis said it would only take six or seven months to ready the complex for use.

"If the TDC wants to purchase the property, they would do their own thing," said Davis . "But this is how we envision it happening, and we are doing the preliminaries on presenting the concept."

When Davis purchased the land, he bought it from the government paying $10.13 million, and $3.25 million to St. Joe for highway frontage.

The property has been used as a spray field in the past, but Davis said an environmental assessment has been done by him and the county and the water on the property is good to go.
