Hadn't seen this mentioned - especially after earlier concerns of development.
It is reported that the single parcel in the middle of the Navarre Marine Park (beach - soundside) has been acquired by something called the Florida Land Trust (or such) for about $2-2.5M (I think the money is from the oil spill settlement, but not sure) and is in the process of being transferred/deeded to the county with a restriction that it remain for "recreational/conservation" use in perpetuity. Hooray!
Cheers, Pete

This is great news, I've long worried about development of this land.
