Playground expansion planned for Tiger Point

Posted on October 24, 2016 by Romi White

UPDATE: Due to the determination there will be a lack of a quorum on Thursday, commissioners are voting on agenda items today.

Santa Rosa County Commissioners this week will discuss approval of a $173,082.80 expansion of the Tiger Point Park playground using District 5 Recreation Funds.

The project will include installation of all-inclusive equipment aimed for two- to five-year-old children and will match existing equipment setup.

Other issues on this week’s commission agenda include:

  • Approving construction of 2400 linear feet of sidewalk on Ortega Street in the amount of $46,547 using Area 3 impact fees;
  • Obtaining competitive quotes to repair some wooden panels on Navarre Beach Fishing Pier;
  • Follow-up discussion regarding Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center request to extend its lease in a county-owned facility;
  •  Clarifying the deadline that all beach leaseholders submitting letters of request postmarked by Nov. 1 can take advantage of the $250 lease fee cap and elimination of the 5 percent short-term rental fee (retroactive to Nov. 1, 2014).

Agenda item discussions start today during the board’s 9 a.m. committee meeting. The regular meeting, when votes historically occur, will take place at 9 a.m., Thursday. Both meetings will be hosted at the County Administrative Complex, located at 6495 Caroline Street in Milton,
