The Navarre Town Center Plan has been weighed, measured and its future existence is bleak.
Following several town-hall style meetings on the subject, Santa Rosa County commissioners are showing they are truly listening.
Commissioners are mulling over and are expected to decide on an “opt out” reversal of the Town Center plan today, June 23.
The plan was presented by Beckie Cato, director of Santa Rosa County’s Department of Planning and Zoning, and discussed at length during the commission’s meeting June 20.
“Public input was varied, but overall there was expressed a general frustration with the perceived impact of the Plan on new development in the community,” said Cato.
Commissioner Don Salter said the plan, which was implemented in 2004, was not a board project, but a citizen one.
