Meeting to discuss military training on Blackwater River
Today, you can weigh in on the proposed plan to allow the Air Force to train on state forest lands in northwest Florida.
The Air Force wants to use Blackwater State Forest in Santa Rosa County for on-the-ground and aircraft training.
Some state park goers have expressed concern over the plan and how military exercises would affect the forest and parks.
But the Air Force warns that if the proposal does not go through, the region likely will not be able to sustain the increased demands for training space in the upcoming years.
There is a public hearing on the matter tomorrow at 6 pm at the Bagdad Recreation Facility on School Street in Milton.
