Barry Holds Town Hall Meeting

May 17, 2017

District 5 Escambia County Commissioner Steven Barry held a community town hall meeting Tuesday evening at the Barrineau Park Community Center.

Most questions and comments centered around roads and bridges, including the ongoing closure of Molino Road for a bridge replacement. [Read more: When Will The Molino Road Bridge Reopen?]

Barry said about 20 miles of dirt roads had been paved in District 5 during the last four years, with about 60 miles of dirt road remaining to be surfaced.

Among other issues, residents also expressed concerns about the lack of space for a growing program at the Molino Ballpark and the lack of  practice space for the Northwest Escambia football program. Barry said a lighted football practice field will be constructed in Walnut Hill between the walking track at the community center and the nearby Bradberry Park. photos, click to enlarge.
