Alys Beach Walking Tour* 

Thursday, August 11th 2:00 – 5:00 PM | Registration: $55

3 CECs, DBPR and LACES Approved, Course # 13109 

*Walking tour will cover about 1 mile

Marieanne Khoury-Vogt, AIA, the town architect for Alys Beach® will lead the FC/ASLA walking tour of the iconic town, which was founded in 2003, based on a master plan by the renowned new urbanist-town planning organization, Duany-Plater-Zyberk and better known as DPZ. Alys Beach was the third resort community on the now famous 30A corridor designed by DPZ beginning with Seaside® founded in 1981 and followed a decade later by Rosemary Beach which was founded in 1991. The tour will highlight the master plan and the over-arching town planning, placemaking design principles and the corollary codes upon which Alys Beach was built and which also helped community development adhere to fortified and Florida green standards.

In addition, Patrick and Marieanne will discuss the influence that the climate risks of the Gulf Coast (which in addition to normal aesthetic considerations) demand the use of an ecological approach that prioritizes the resilient design principles. These principles have informed the design and execution of the town’s architecture as well as its functional and social infrastructure, i.e., stormwater management facilities, public areas, and pagates the normally harsh conditions associated with this coastal environments.

    In addition, the tour will feature a special presentation of the recently completed reinvention of the Motor Courts, now known as The Court. Project Manager, Micah Davis and Landscape Architect, Isaac Stein, will focus their discussion during this portion of the tour on how the climate risks of the Gulf Coast have affected their sustainable approach to making  design decisions. The discussion will spotlight how prioritizing resilient design principles and sustainability informed the design and execution of the project’s stormwater management facilities, plant selections, and complementary maintenance regimes which all work together to mitigate against the normally harsh conditions associated with coastal development as well the less frequent but inevitable onslaught of high winds and heavy rains associated with tropical storms and hurricanes.

    Next the tour will take the bus towards Sweet Bay, which is the redevelopment of the former Panama City airport into a Neotraditional Master Planned community. After arriving at Sweet Bay, the tour will discuss the relocation of the former airport and the site’s redevelopment into a large-scale master planned community through master planning, permitting and construction.  Participants will learn about the record growth trends, demographics and challenges of responding to the demands expected to last over next couple of decades.  Almost across the street, the tour guests will walk to the outfall of the regional stormwater conveyance into Robinson Bayou and the new challenges of addressing regional stormwater, flooding, and the impacts from the loss of canopy on stormwater on a regional scale.
