    The City of Destin has partnered with the Army Corps of Engineers to undertake a Carrying Capacity Study through the Corps of Engineers’ Planning Assistance to States Program. The Harbor Capacity Study will, among other things, focus on the following three goals: 
    Protect the environmental health of the harbor and surrounding waterways.
    Promote safety and enjoyment on our local waters.
    Promote the economic viability of businesses operating on or along the Harbor.
     
    Between July 2021 and mid-October 2021, the City of Destin and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be conducting a number of activities over the next 4 months to support the Destin Harbor Carrying Capacity Study. These activities include: 
    Counting of parking spaces around the harbor area, including both public and private parking.
    Counting of vessels in the harbor and on the water.
    Inventory of both parking spaces, trailer spaces, and vessel slips.
    Photography of harbor area including slips and vessels.
    UAV photography.
    In-person surveys around harbor area and boat launches.
    Mailed surveys to a sample of residents including slip owners.
     
    All questions should be directed to the Community Development Department at (850) 654-1119 Option 2 or email Planning@cityofdestin.com
