Golf Garden Project Update Presented by Engineer Chance Powell to BCC

Walton County, January 31, 2024 - In a recent session, Walton County Engineer Chance Powell briefed the Walton County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) on the progress of the Golf Garden project.

Powell highlighted that the conceptual plan for the Golf Garden had received approval during a previous board meeting.

The comprehensive plan encompasses an irrigation-landscaping design, park and path lighting (22 lights), park benches, a bike rack, a small pavilion/amphitheater, an additional restroom, and perimeter fencing.

"At present, $142,000 in District Four plat fees and approximately $95,000 in ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) funds have been earmarked for the park, totaling $237,000," Powell reported.

"As of now, $91,847 has been utilized, leaving us with roughly $145,000. To fulfill the identified items on the conceptual plan, we require an additional $176,794."

Powell sought approval to proceed with the remaining tasks and submit the development order for the Golf Garden project.

Commissioner Donna Johns expressed her commitment to the project by allocating $177,000 from her District 4 plat fee allotment.

She commended Powell, stating, "I want to thank you very much for what you are doing.

People in the area are just really thrilled to have that because, as you know, there are a lot of families there.

There are no sidewalks yet; we're still working on that, and people are dodging cars all the time, so this gives people a place to actually be able to walk and enjoy and relax.

It was well-needed, and I really appreciate all that you’ve done."

The BCC unanimously approved Commissioner Johns' motion, reinforcing the ongoing commitment to enhance community spaces and address the recreational needs of residents.
