Welcome! The St. Joe Company has received approval of the Bay-Walton Sector Plan and it is in effect as of June 30, 2015. The Bay-Walton Sector Plan is an update and expansion of the previously approved West Bay Sector Plan into a larger Bay-Walton Sector Plan. The expansion area is located immediately to the west of the West Bay Sector Plan in Bay County and Walton County, Florida. The Bay-Walton Sector Plan is a large scale and long-range plan that provides a 50-year vision for directing growth, development and environmental resource protection.
St. Joe submitted the Bay-Walton Sector Plan Application to both Bay County and Walton County planning officials on April 11, 2014. The application was reviewed by local county government in a series of public hearings during July, August, September and October, 2014. The application was approved by both Bay County and Walton County for transmittal to the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) to begin the state review process. DEO reported on October 27, 2014 that the application was deemed complete and that the state review process would begin. The state review process involves significant review by state agencies. In December, 2014, DEO issued the Objections, Recommendations and Comments report (ORC). In May, 2015, both Bay County and Walton County formally adopted the Bay-Walton Sector Plan. In June, 2015, the Bay-Walton Sector Plan was found in compliance with State Statute and was fully enacted.
