UPDATE ON OLD BUSINESS:

Fishing Pier Decking Material – The engineering and legal department are working on a master services agreement with all firms.

Multi-Use Path Along Gulf Blvd. Improvements – High spots along walking trail have been heated and scraped to reduce trip hazards.

Restroom on Fishing Pier – The restroom on the pier is the responsibility of the pier lessee.  Currently pier management will focus on the restaurant and infrastructure improvements on the pier and once completed they will address the restroom. The restroom issue has been addressed with county commissioners and a temporary rest room on the pier is in the works while research is still completed on a final solution.

District 4 Master Plan –  A public meeting was held on Monday, June 11, 5:30 to 9 at Navarre High School. We are waiting for tabulation of this information.

Navarre Beach Sports and Recreation – The County issued an itinerant vendor permit for the property adjacent west of Springhill Suites.  The allowance is for 15 volleyball courts to be constructed on a temporary bases for volleyball tournaments to be held.  This project is in cooperation with Springhill Suites that owns the property.

 Navarre Mainland Hotel – A development order and site plan was approved on May 1st for a proposed 100 room hotel located on the northeast side of Navarre Beach causeway on the mainland.

Renovation of Navarre Park –Genesis Engineering is under design.

Pedestrian and Vehicular Traffic Issues – Stephen Turner, Dir. of Public Works is unwilling to do anything more than what has been done. Blinking lights have been repaired and we are monitoring the situation.

Tuner House –Bids for bring the home into compliance have been submitted by a contractor and the cleaning of the interior has begun.

Gulf Blvd. Irrigation –Melvin Consulting Engineers was unwilling to provide us with a bid so we have now asked East Bay Landscaping to provide a bid. We expect that information to become available by the end of June.

NBLRA is hosting the Tunes on the Dunes Program Thursday, August 9.- We are looking for volunteers to help sell 50/50 Tickets during the event.  50% of the ticket sales go to the holder of the winning number draw and the other 50% goes to local charities. Please get in touch with Peter Birckhead if you are interest in helping out.

 

NEW BUSINESS:

A fifth lifeguard stand in the Navarre Beach Marine Park which improves “rounding” times for the roving patrols on the rest of the beach has been added.

• Lifeguards adjusted their hours to 10 am to 6pm for better coverage

• Two beach wheelchairs are available for checking out at the pier

A fifth lifeguard tower was installed on the beach at Public Access #39 C, just west of 8477 Gulf Blvd. (in front of the Caribbean Resort Condominium). The stands are better positioned for lifeguards to observe swimmers on the beach and the addition of the fifth tower helped to improve the roving patrol’s coverage frequency along the beach. Additionally, lifeguards adjusted their shifts one hour to offer better coverage for swimmers in summer’s longer days, staffing the beach from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week.

Santa Rosa County’s UF/IFAS Extension Office is launching a new program, the Navarre Beach Ambassadors, dedicated to promoting safe enjoyment of Navarre Beach. The program is looking for local volunteers to dedicate their time to walking along the beach and interacting with locals and tourists. To find out more Chris Verlinde, UF/IFAS Santa Rosa County Sea Grant extension agent, (850) 623-3868 or chrismv@ufl.edu
