The art showcases Port St. Joe as a year-round destination and highlights Plein Air, Salt Air Farmers Market, Cape San Blas Lighthouse, live music, and the annual Scallop Festival. Banners will be displayed along Marina Drive, Martin Luther King Boulevard, U.S. 98 and in the Historic Downtown District.

The City of Port St. Joe was awarded a grant to produce a professional-quality video documentary capturing the story of the rescue of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse from impending destruction by the Gulf of Mexico and relocation to the BayPark area of St. Joseph Bay.

Request for Qualifications will be published shortly for this project.

The Mission of the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency is to serve the community by guiding redevelopment activities to create a vibrant downtown core and revitalized neighborhood, to improve quality of life, and to stimulate economic growth within the Agency's District.
