    The city of Destin has partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a study of the Destin harbor.

    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 conduct a number of activities 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.
