Presentation: ABSW’s Community Information Presentation Unveiled

After much research, study and thoughtful consideration, we believe that incorporation of South Walton as a municipality is the best way to begin to address our community’s concerns and opportunities. Our goal is to provide the citizens of South Walton with as much information as possible about the potential incorporation of our community and with opportunities to discuss that information and get your questions answered. Please view the presentations for more information.

A Better South Walton Announces Community Meetings to Discuss Feasibility Study Results and Next Steps

MAY 2, 2016 — A Better South Walton, Inc. (ABSW), a nonprofit organization founded to seek more effective governance and local representation for South Walton, is holding three community meetings to discuss the key findings of the preliminary feasibility study and the opportunities it gives the community. These meetings will give the community the chance to get the information surrounding the ABSW initiative, ask questions and voice their concerns.

“Our residents make up almost 40% of the population of Walton County and 88.5% of taxes generated in the county last year were generated in South Walton,” says ABSW President David Pleat. “It is time to get the facts about incorporation and make an informed decision about the future of South Walton.”

The community meetings, free and open to the public, will outline the origin and purpose of ABSW, the highlights of the feasibility study and findings from a recent survey of South Walton residents. Each meeting will discuss the options available for the future of South Walton, including incorporation into a municipality, and the cost, timeline and impact of incorporation.

“It’s now time to share these results and talk about what’s next,” states Pleat. “We have an incredible opportunity before us, one that allows us to shape the future of South Walton ourselves. Every resident deserves a say in how South Walton is run.”

The meetings will be held:

Monday, May 9th
5:30-7 p.m.
Rosemary Beach Town Hall
S. Barrett Square, Rosemary Beach, FL

Wednesday, May 11th
