Scenic Walton was formed in 2008 by a dedicated group of business owners and residents. Scenic Walton is a 501c(3) non-profit that works with the community and elected officials to preserve the natural beauty of Walton County, while also increasing pedestrian and cyclist safety.
We are currently working on securing funding for multi-use path installation and median landscaping projects, as well as advocating for the undergrounding of overhead utilities, the minimization of Small Cell/5G towers and improvements to development codes for primary transportation corridors.
Leigh Moore proudly serves as Executive Director for Scenic Walton. She also serves on the Scenic America Board of Directors as Vice Chair, the Citizens for a Scenic Florida Board of Directors and Executive Committee, the Walton County Design Review Board, the Walton Area Chamber Government Affairs Committee, and is the Chair of the Visit South Walton Destination Improvement Committee.
Susan Vallee is glad to serve as the Administrative Coordinator for Scenic Walton. She’s the author of the popular guidebook, “Meet Me on 30A,” and was the publisher of 30A Kids Club Magazine. She oversaw all levels of production for two journalism products for the towns of Rosemary Beach and Seaside, provides content marketing for businesses, freelances, and writes fiction.
