Rezoning for helicopter field swap set for Jan. 8

The Santa Rosa County zoning board Jan. 8 will review a request from Escambia County to rezone a 601-acre agricultural parcel near the Chumuckla community for a military helicopter field.

Escambia County purchased the acreage near Ard Field Road for $1.8 million in December 2013 to develop an alternative helicopter field to swap for an existing military outlying field (OLF 8) adjacent to Navy Federal Credit Union’s growing Beulah campus. Plans call for OLF 8 to be converted into a commerce park.
