The Magnolia Bay Marina and Resort project, still in the permitting stages, continues to receive the blessings of Taylor County government. The Board of County Commissioners has agreed to abandon a portion of the right-of-way along Dekle Beach Road at the request of the project developers. A 100-ft. wide deep water channel will run beside the road from the new marina to the Gulf, replacing a small stream that currently runs through a manmade ditch dug years ago to build the road. A six-lane boat ramp and 400 parking spaces at the marina will be deeded to the county by Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt, owner of the project.
