I meant to post this the other day and just got too busy to post...I've just received this excellent news from the Bay chamber of commerce... Today, Jan. 28th, the Panama City/Bay County International Airport announced the stay on construction for the new airport has been lifted by the US Court of Appeals. The Next step is in the hands of the Army Corp of Engineers to lift their suspension.The Airport also announced US Air will begin servicing Panama City in April.We're once again on track!This is the best news we could possibly have for the residents of Bay County Florida.Buyers and investors: with interest rates the lowest they have been in 4 years, as well as this announcement, it's time to open the flood gates and start buying and investing!

  The Growth of Panama City BeachBy Marta RoseThe growth of Panama City Beach has of late been compared to that of its southern cousin, MiamiBeach. Known as the "million dollar sandbar," Miami Beach in the 1930s was born of fantasy andspeculation, designed for fun and profit. A morphing of modern architecture and movieland fantasy,Bauhaus sleekness, Art Deco glamour and tropical imagery, the Miami Beach "look" was designedspecifically for the hotels and apartments of this emerging resort.Another Florida city is going through a similar metamorphosis. Both tropical and tranquil in nature,Panama City Beach is an emerging beachfront resort city as well, more the likes of the pre-glitteringMiami Beach in the 1920's. In the twenties on the Emerald Coast, small cottages were built, mostly onth...

The latest attempts to stop the Panama City International Airport have been reported in the Tallahassee Democrat... The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has suspended a permit for the proposed new international airport in Bay County following a court's decision to issue a stay in a related legal challenge. The St. Joe Co. has agreed to donate 4,000 acres for the airport as part of a plan for building thousands of homes in addition to commercial and industrial buildings. Read the full story... Many of the Panama City-Lynn Haven area projected growth rates were linked directly to the new Panama City International Airport. To continue its present rate of growth, the area requires this project continue on schedule without additional delays. For more information on this and other Panama City rel...
