While we may not be on The Key, we are a part of the Perdido Key area and may wish to participate in what is happening there.
In This Issue
Summer reigns on Perdido Key! No longer a sleepy little village, people are flocking to the shores to enjoy this abundance of pristine beauty. Never before has it been so important for those who care about this island to stay on top of the issues which impact the area. To this end the PKA board has made some changes with the hope of keeping our community connected. Read on to find out how we are changing and in what ways you can be involved. Best Regards, Perdido Key Board of Directors.
Master Plan Presentation July & August 2013 Looking for something to do this July? The Escambia County Development Services will be hosting two opportunities to view the latest version of the proposed Perdido Key Master Plan, a long-range vision and design plan for land use on Perdido Key and the immediate commercial areas across the bridge. This might be your last chance to offer input to responsibly guide future growth of the Key and its resources. Please plan on attending either July 10 or August 14, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. at the Perdido Key Methodist Church Community Center, 13660 Innerarity Point Road. Please attend and show your support for orderly long range planning.
Road Closing! FDOT will be closing and detouring Bauer Road (between Gulf Beach Hwy. and Sorrento Road) for 250 days to replace the bridge just south of Sorrento Road. This is a FDOT funded bridge replacement project and the contact person is Georgina Acierto-Kent, 850-981-2804.
Crosswalk In The Works! Alan Thedford, Escambia County Office of Transportation and Traffic Operations Engineering Specialist has said that $50,000 has been allocated toward the installation of a mid-block pedestrian crossing on Perdido Key Drive. Officials have asked that this “very high profile project” for District 2 be expedited.
