On Saturday, October 14th, Walton County District 1 Commissioner Bill Chapman hosted a ceremony at the Valley View Community Center to unveil the numerous renovations that were completed on the building and on the grounds.
The ceremony was attended by more than 60 local residents, County governmental leaders and county employees.  Joining Commissioner Chapman were District 2 Commissioner and Chairwoman Cecilia Jones, District 4 Commissioner Sara Comander, Walton County Tax Collector Rhonda Skipper and Walton County Supervisor of Elections Bobby Beasley.
Over the past several of months, Walton County Facilities Maintenance Crews, along with inmate work crews from the State Correctional Institute, worked to complete a large number of renovations to the Valley View Community Center located at 9032 County Hwy 183 South in Ponce de Leon.
The funding for the renovations were made possible through the allocation of $60,000 of County recreational plat fees, $30,000 from Commissioner Chapman’s District 1 account and a gracious donation of $30,000 from Commissioner Tony Anderson’s District 5 account.
The work that was completed on the center included renovations to both the interior and exterior of the facility.  Renovations included:
  • Sanded and painted all interior floors
  • Painted and refurbished the drop ceiling
  • Installed new countertops, cabinets and fixtures in the kitchen
  • Demolition and rebuilding of some interior walls
  • Bathroom renovations including new sinks and toilets
  • Installation of new mini split air conditioning units
  • Installation of chain-link fencing surround the center
  • Rebuilding of basketball courts
  • Placed milmat on parking lot
While numerous renovations have been completed, there are additional upcoming projects slated for the center including the installation of a playground and construction of a pole barn.
Commissioner Chapman would like to give a special thanks to District 5 Commissioner Tony Anderson for his contribution of District 5 Rec Plat Fees, to Walton County Facilities Maintenance employees and to the Walton Correctional Institute for the use of their skilled inmate work crews.
