CBA spent the beginning of 2010 settling in to its new headquarters at the South Walton campus of Northwest Florida State College.

The NWFSC South Walton Center is developed on 16 acres of a nearly 30 acre site owned by the college that is part of the county’s government and education center. South Walton High School, the South Walton Library and the Walton County Government Center are located on adjacent parcels of the more than 110 acres originally acquired by the Walton County Commission from the state of Florida.

CBA director Julie Terrell is responsible for primary administrative oversight of the new NWFSC South Walton Center, which consists of four buildings all under the same roofing structure with approximately 11,000 square feet of administrative and classroom space to serve the growing south Emerald Coast region. CBA is especially excited about the additional building on campus designed to house up to four boats and equipped with a walk-in freezer for all of their water samples.
Other features incorporated into the college’s seventh location include exterior courtyards surrounded by integral covered walkways and a signature clock tower. The site was designed with sensitivity to the creation of pedestrian friendly walkways and the preservation of the environment.  The architecture of the buildings is influenced by existing South Walton County buildings, as well as that of the notable planned communities nearby, such as Seaside and WaterColor that express a distinctive Florida vernacular.

Please note that CBA’s mailing address will remain the same (100 College Boulevard / Niceville, FL 32578) but their phone number has changed to 850-267-1888.
