Beach overcrowded: In-season beach events under scrutiny

| Riley Hansen

The Tourist Development Council (TDC) addressed the traffic jams caused by events on Navarre Beach at Monday’s Santa Rosa County Board of Commissioner’s meeting. Julie White, the Tourist Development Director, brought her concern to the commissioners regarding the local events held during peak tourist season.

The proposed Run, Walk and Race Policy would address the domino effect White said the fun runs cause, including multi-hour long traffic delays, closed-off parking lots and local employees having trouble getting to and from work due to the former issues. According to the proposed policy, fun runs would not be allowed on Navarre Beach during the tourist season of March 1 to October 31.
