Southeast Range Complex Position Paper - 12/28/2016

Southeast Range Complex Cooperative Concept Position Paper Prepared by the Defense Support Initiatives Committee

This community is nestled comfortably along the shores of Choctawhatchee Bay. This friendly town lives up to its name. Once known as "Boggy," Niceville is situated along the scenic shores of Choctawhatchee Bay. It has the strongest schools in the county, picturesque parks, a youth center, sports fields and is home to the Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival, which attracts thousands of attendees each year. With so much to offer, it’s no surprise that Bloombergs Business Week (January 2012) named Niceville "The Best Place to Raise Kids in Florida."
