Energized: Walton County revitalizes industrial park
For more than a decade, Walton County's Mossy Head Industrial Park sat vacant, lacking infrastructure and unable to compete with other shovel-ready northwest Florida sites.
In 2013 Walton County commissioners invested $500,000 to improve the park's infrastructure, coupled with an aggressive streamlining of the county's permitting process. Commissioners then enlisted the help of Walton's legislative delegation to secure state funding for additional road improvements and construction of a large wastewater treatment plant to service the park.
By 2014, Mossy Head was open for business and quickly began attracting tenants.
