After two years of coordination, a new Welcome to Navarre sign was installed on southbound Highway 87 at the intersection of Segura Street near the vacant Pure gas station.
The $3700 sign was designed by D&G Graphics in Fort Walton Beach and installed by Kool Breeze of Northwest Florida. The county and the Navarre Beach Area Chamber split the cost of the sign.
Chamber president-elect Regina Carter was inspired to spearhead the project from trips with her granddaughters to Navarre. Carter said she would point out landmarks that would let them know they were getting close.
“Now they have a sign to tell them we made it to Navarre!” Carter said with a laugh.
