South Walton Community Council The South Walton Community Council is a nonpartisan, nonprofit coalition of several hundred residents, property owners, employees, neighborhoods and business owners. In 1995, growing out of a need for grassroots expression, a group of dedicated citizens gathered to make a difference in their community. They recognized how preserving & protecting the unique coastal environment would enhance the quality of life for all who visit or chose to call South Walton home. After 16 years these volunteers are going strong. For more information go to  www.SouthWaltonCC.org or follow us on Facebook as South Walton Community Council.
