Intro_Escambia

 

We're a community that believes in hope. We've been hoping for many years. Unfortunately, that hope is falling short.
Escambia County Resident Council Meeting January 2021

Escambia County has had two 100-year storms and one 500-year storm in the last 12 years

  • Do you worry every time a hurricane or heavy rain is in the forecast?

  • Have you not been able to get where you need to go because our roads are flooded?

  • Do you feel like your local government doesn't care about your problem?

The funding...

The $417 million stormwater plan created after the 2014 floods remains largely unfunded leaving Escambia County unprotected
