July 6, 2016 – A Better South Walton (ABSW) is incredibly fortunate to have the support of so many members of the local community. ABSW began as a group of citizens devoting their time and energy to exploring ideas to improve South Walton as it rapidly expands. With tremendous local support, ABSW has evolved into an initiative that seeks more effective, responsive governance and increased local representation for South Walton to preserve and enhance the unique character and quality of life that our residents and visitors value.

• Volunteering to donate their time – 101 people
• Responding to the survey – 2,294 people

Donations make it possible for ABSW to fund necessary research and analysis and to communicate this information to the citizens and businesses of South Walton. Financial and in-kind donations have both been an integral part of the continued growth of ABSW.
