Envision Perdido was an effort in the early 2000s that resulted in a sheriff’s deputy outpost on Gulf Beach Highway, a community center on Perdido Key, and the Southwest Escambia Sports Complex on Bauer Road. They ultimately decided to shift to another approach ― the Perdido Key Master Plan. That finished around 2016, and while it helped a bit, it only addressed a portion of Perdido Key and did not benefit the larger Perdido community. Also, a master plan is only as good as the local government that works to carry it out. In the case of the Perdido Key Master Plan, to date, nothing has been implemented.
