Downtown Fort Walton Beach, Florida has the opportunity to redevelop into a walkable community, encouraging high-density, mixed-use development that creates a live, work and play environment supported by local businesses. To facilitate the redevelopment process, the City of Fort Walton Beach commissioned Matrix to develop the Downtown Fort Walton Beach Master Plan. The planning process utilized public engagement strategies that included community surveys (businesses and residents); stakeholder meetings; a market condition summary; and Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis. With input from city staff, Downtown businesses and property owners, regional developers and Fort Walton Beach organizations and authorities, we have developed transportation alternatives, existing conditions maps, community workshops, economic analyses, and more.  Matrix continues their efforts to support Fort Walton Beach in this redevelopment effort.
