The following are the March 2019 BBLC Updates:

• Gulf Blvd Landscaping and Irrigation Project - Julie White, Director of the Tourism Development Council, addressed our March meeting and gave an update on the Gulf Blvd Landscaping and Irrigation Project. At this time the project is on a temporary hold pending the Tourism Development Council Board desire to move forward with the beautification of Navarre Causeway first before addressing Gulf Blvd. Part of the issue is that the TDC wants to brand the benches and trash can holders from the Tom Thumb to just beyond the Pearl Condo building which require the existing benches to be relocated. At this time members of NBLRA wish to have the existing benches remain as they are. The TDC is honoring that request for now and will revisit the irrigation and landscaping of Gulf Blvd. at a later time. Stay tuned!

• Enhanced safety features will be installed at the Gulf Blvd. crosswalk from the boat ramp parking lot to the fishing pier in the coming months including a sidewalk from crosswalk to the pier.

• Radar-activated “Your Speed Is” signs are being furnished to the county by NBLRA and three donors for installation on White Sands Blvd. The signs should be installed by the time you are reading this.  Activation should soon follow.

• Navarre Beach Improvements of up to $100,000 will include two identical areas/islands located in the east and west end parking lot areas of the pier parking lot with shade sails, park benches, bike racks, garbage cans and new shower towers on concrete pads at each location. The Tourist Development Office is working with the engineering department on this project through a continuing engineering services consultant.

• Gulfside and Soundside NRDA Improvements to Navarre Beach Marine Park – Ribbon cuttings for these two projects will be planned in the coming weeks but no set dates as of yet. From Pearce Barrett, 03/07/2019 - We are only waiting on the delivery of the kayak dock to complete the soundside  project but unfortunately don’t have an exact date yet other than approximate end of March. The Gulfside project is moving along well and should be finished in May as planned. The dune planting on the soundside will begin next week too and should be completed within the next two weeks.

• Fishing Pier Decking Material – The pier renovation bids were opened March 7, 2019. The contract may be awarded within the next two BOCC meeting cycles.

• Renovation of Navarre Park – We are hoping to advertise project/bid this month. A permit application has been made to Santa Rosa County. FDEP and COE permit applications will be made in March.

• Restroom on Fishing Pier – An up-to-six-month extension for delivery
