1 East Corridor Project US 98 / CR 30A BEAUTIFICATION AND SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS

2 Goal and Scope The goal of our committee is to create a safe and beautiful infrastructure made up of intertwined residential and commercial elements with lighted pedestrian walkways, bicycle paths and an awe-inspiring landscape. This will be the “Gateway” to South Walton County and a model for our community and many other communities in Northwest Florida. The following items are the top priorities of our committee: ◦Safety ◦Beautification ◦Maximization of the multi-modal aspect of the roadways Geographic Scope of the project ◦US 98 from Watersound Parkway to the Walton-Bay County Line ◦CR 30A from Rosemary Beach East to US 98

3 Project Elements o Reduction of Speed Limit on US 98 o Median and ROW Landscaping and Lighting o Inter-connected and Safe Pedestrian-friendly Sidewalks o Inter-connected and Safe Bike Paths o Safe Pedestrian and Cyclist-friendly Access Crossing US 98 o Undergrounding of Utilities o Aesthetic Improvement of Existing Developments

4 Need for the Project Development Est. # UnitsStatus Watersound Origins 5,000+ homes Over the Next 10 years West Shore Place 40 homes Currently Selling Waterview 37 homes Currently Selling Communities along E CR 30A N/APent Up Demand 30Avenue (3 Phases) 42 October 2014 - March 2015 Crossings at Inlet Beach 10October 2014 Inn at the Gulf682014 / 2015 Donut Hole1Opened 3/2014* *Pedestrian crossing 98 struck by vehicle 5/31/14

5 Design 30A / 98 Intersection Pedestrian Bridge

6 Design Surrounding 30A / 98 Intersection

7 Plant Materials Eastern Section Sabal Palm Pindo Palm Sand Live Oak Russian Sage Tree Form Ligustrum Dwarf Yaupon Imperial Blue Plumbago Saw Palmetto Crepe Myrtle Medjool Palm Muhly Grass

8 Plant Materials Western Section Saw Cordgrass Sand Live Oak Muhly Grass Saw Palmetto Bermuda Turf Grass (all sections)

9 Multi-use Path Design Example - Instructional Signage Example – Multiple Uses * Our current proposed design calls for a 10-foot wide path with a wider section for pedestrians than for cyclists on both sides of the roadway. Paths shown here are examples and may or may not depict those characteristics. Example - Buffer from Roadway
