“One important component of that is infrastructure. If we grow so fast that we can’t maintain the necessary levels of service with our infrastructure, we won’t be a very good place to live and we won’t stay on that (UF) list very long.”

Boyles cited ongoing engineering planning projects — like P.J. Adams Parkway’s widening and creation of a P.J. Adams/Antioch Road bypass around Crestview’s southwest quadrant — as examples of county officials’ increased focus on the Crestview area.

“I think the job of equitably distributing the limited resources of the county is a challenging one,” Boyles said. “I think having two commissioners from the north end of the county for the first time will help assure our area will get its fair share of those resources.”
