Warrington Redevelopment District
The Warrington Redevelopment District was Escambia County’s first designated redevelopment district under the state of Florida’s Community Redevelopment Act of 1969, Florida Statutes Chapter 163.330. The Escambia County Board of County Commissioners adopted the district in 1997, pursuant to ordinance numbers 1995-96 and 1996-9. The ordinance was amended during 1998 and 2002, pursuant to ordinance numbers 98-55 and 2002-15, which revised the original boundary legal description of the Warrington District. Currently, the district covers an area of approximately 3.6 square miles consisting of high density mixed uses and abuts the Brownsville and Barrancas Redevelopment Districts to the north and east respectively.
This district is transected by the Navy Boulevard, South Old Corry Field Road, and the Gulf Beach Highway-Barrancas Avenue commercial corridors, and features a variety of waterfront real estate along the shorelines of Bayou Grande and Davenport Bayou. The Warrington Redevelopment District is also home to the quaint Navy Point community and an assortment of parks ranging from waterfront neighborhood parks to the Jones Swamp Greenway and Nature Preserve located along the Bayou Chico watershed.
