Used to be a pass in Navarre.
But even mother nature even gave up on it over 30+ yrs. ago.
I'm remember the last time they dredged it, didn't last past 1 yrs. storms.

Money pit to keep it serviceable.

What's your idea of how to pay for new schools and roads?just let county residents pay for it all? Build the pass.
I never said growth would or should stop. My point is that it is NOT the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that many of our "leaders" tout it as. And screw the $5-10 toll, unless locals are exempt!! I often drive farther to get to Navarre Beach because of what Pensacola Beach has turned into, at least on weekends. If that's progress you can keep it! Heck NB gets pretty busy on nice weekends as it is! SRC used to have an impact fee on new development that was supposed to go toward the needs created by growth, but was put on hold during the big recession. It was even supposed to be reinstated a year or so ago but never was. Yet they still want to raise MY taxes? I guess I don't count, not making big campaign contributions and all. BTW, the bed taxes for beach rentals provide a pretty penny to the County. The new hotel, when finished, will add to that.

If you really like maximum development, why not move to Destin or much of South Florida?

BTW, what dictionary says Increasing taxes is progress?????? Not mine!

My guess would be beach erosion would be worse with a pass. The will have to be pumping and dredging much more. More expense on the tax payers. Just my 2 cents.

Not to mention water quality/clarity down-current from this proposed pass.

People like 706z make me wish Escambia county hadn't given Navarre to SRC. Looks like the residents want to destroy it. Sad thing is, 706Z doesn't seem to understand why a pass there did not work before and will not work now. It's for the same reason Phillips Inlet in PC shuts itself. Not enough outflow. Look at the passes in Florida and you'll notice something. Bays with rivers flowing into them.
