The City of Fort Walton Beach has the final permits to move forward with the The Landing Park renovations

Fort Walton Beach Landing renovation project

On Thursday afternoon, the City of Fort Walton Beach received some good news regarding the renovation project for The Landing Park in Downtown Fort Walton Beach.

  • City Manager Michael Beedie told Get The Coast that he has received the fully executed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit for the Landing Improvements.

This means that the city can now move forward with bidding out the construction for this much-anticipated project. Beedie told Get The Coast yesterday that the city will more than likely award the contracts for the renovations in August. 

Since August 2017, the city has been working with Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to permit the Landing Improvement Project. 

  • While it didn’t take as long to get the DEP permitsthe permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been the major hold-up.
  • The USACOE permit has been held up in historical review by the State of Florida due to the presence of historical artifacts in the area of the proposed improvements.
