District 4 comprises 27 square miles in the southeast corner of Santa Rosa County next to Eglin AFB and includes the unincorporated communities of Navarre, Holley by the Sea, Holley and Navarre Beach on Santa Rosa Island. A bedroom community with a population of almost 40,000, District 4 is attracting a growing permanent and tourist population due to its renowned relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere, four miles of Gulf beachfront, and the Gulf Islands National Seashore.

The Master Plan is needed to manage future growth, attract high quality businesses and jobs, protect natural resources, promote high quality design of public spaces, provide for parks and schools, and maintain public safety and municipal services– all of which contribute to the quality of life that residents have come to expect.
