Sports complex properties revisited

Published: Friday, April 11, 2014 at 02:48 PM.

"The major criteria in considering each site is they must have 20 contiguous acres located in South Walton," said Jones, "but also important is location, funding, upland, and what problems will need to be addressed at each location."

All the parcels originally looked at are still available. Jones said he and the Tourist Development Council Executive Director Jim Bagby will revisit all four.

The other three locations are:

- Approximately 26 acres in Miramar Beach close to the water treatment plant, is the property that is fartherest west.

- Approximately 20 acres on Thompson Road , between U.S. Highway 98 and County Road 30A.

- Approximately 30 acres just south of Chat Holley, which would be closest to South Walton High School .

The sports complex issue was first considered at the June 11, 2013 BCC meeting when Meadows asked the Board to consider a proposal from M.C. Davis about his parcel being utilized as a sports/recreational complex.
