Santa Rosa County was awarded a $75,000 grant to fund coastal access and water quality improvements at the Archie Glover Boat Ramp in Milton, Florida. This funding will be used to protect shorelines and provide coastal access to users of the Archie Glover Boat Ramp.
The Archie Glover Boat Ramp is popular among commercial and recreational fishermen, paddle craft enthusiasts, residents, and visitors. BoardSafe will build, deliver, and install a new, adaptive kayak launch with adjoining floating dock and gangway. These improvements will expand accessibility, increase visitor safety, reduce erosion impacts to the surrounding shoreline, and protect water quality.
This project will result in greater access to Escambia Bay for users of all abilities.
