The Resources, Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act, passed in 2012, was the federal action which provided for the allocation and use of funds gained through civil penalties arising out of the Deepwater Horizon blowout and subsequent oil spill.

On October 18, 2012, the Escambia Board of County Commissioners adopted a resolution to establish a RESTORE Advisory Committee. The Purpose of the committee was to develop a plan, solicit public input and set goals for Escambia County’s use of any funds received from the RESTORE Act. The committee was tasked with reviewing projects and submitting recommendations to the Escambia Board of County Commissioners.

The committee consisted of eleven members. Two members were unrestricted, at-large positions. One position represented the city of Pensacola. The remaining eight members represented:

  • The financial industry
  • The business community
  • Transportation
  • Government
  • Local environmental advocacy organizations
  • Citizens-at large
  • Tourism

The RESTORE Advisory Committee was sunsetted on April 7, 2016 after presenting their recommendations to the Escambia Board of County Commissioners for consideration.
