Real Estate | Calhoun Catalyst Site

As an identified Catalyst Site – a product of Florida’s Rural Economic Development Initiative – these 146 acres surrounding an airfield are prioritized for economic development through partnerships with state, regional, and local organizations.

Calhoun County, in conjunction with the City of Blountstown, the Town of Altha, and the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce prepared a conceptual site plan for the site.

The county, working with Preble-Rish (PRI), has made these improvements:

  • Prepared an overview of the hydraulic water model of the Catalyst Site and city's water systems.
  • Prepared the Catalyst Site Utility Master Plan Report, which identifies all the needed utility improvements to support the development.
  • PRI has completed 100 percent of the design and construction drawings and permit applications.
  • All permit applications have been submitted and all permits and Notices of Intent have been received.
  • A funding meeting was held to discuss potential funding sources for the proposed improvements.
  • $300,000 has been identified to begin construction of building-ready sites in Fall 2012 on Lots 1 and 2, consisting of grading and drainage improvements with existing utilities sufficient to serve these lots.
