REVIVE - RECLAIM - SUSTAIN

Bobby’s Vision For Destin

I’ve called Destin home now for nearly 17 years, and over that time here as a student, a business owner, a Non-profit Director, and a Destin City Councilman, I’ve learned that my desire to know and serve my community will only grow.

My vision, as Mayor of Destin, includes revitalizing Main Street, Morgan Sport Center, and Mountain Drive for the Destin Residents. Revitalizing through beautification and smart development in order to keep Destin a safe and community oriented place for families and businesses alike. I see pathways that lead to parks for our residents to reconnect to nature and each other. I see our city using technology and innovation to revive our infrastructure to help local businesses to thrive. I see a harbor district that preserves our heritage and reflects our values. I see our natural resources becoming more available to those of us who love and live on the Emerald Coast.

KEY ISSUES I WANT TO ADDRESS: 

CRYSTAL BEACH

  • Commercial beach chair vendors need stronger regulations and permitting in order to protect public beach access.
  • Short-term rentals need enforcement and accountability, with a focus on parking regulation and holding the business owners accountable.
  • Current beach acquisitions needs to be completed and future public beaches need to ONLY occur through willing sellers using TDC dollars.

HOLIDAY ISLE

  • Derelict vessels need to be removed with updated city code and harbor safety needs to be enforced.
  • Our public beaches need to be improved by building public bathrooms and additional parking.
  • Short-term rentals need enforcement and accountability, with a focus on parking regulation and holding business owners to Destin standards.

WEST DESTIN

  • Main Street needs to be revitalized and become the heart of Destin.
  • Morgan Sports Center needs new facilities to accommodate Destin’s growth.
  • Destin infrastructure needs improvement; roads, sidewalks, stormwater drainage, and under grounding of utilities.
