If you're looking to purchase a property in the Pensacola area, you need to consult this list of Escambia County Maintained Roads provided by the Escambia County Roads
Buyers who secure VA and FHA financing may not be able to purchase a home on a privately owned and privately maintained road. If a road is privately owned, it is also privately maintained.
Here is the link to search roads in Escamba County to see if they are county owned and maintained or privately owned and maintained. https://myescambia.com/our-services/public-works/roads/county-maintained-roads
Always check with your lender before moving forward with a privately maintained road to be sure the property qualifies for financing. Even if you're not securing a loan and are paying cash, you should research the road situation before proceeding.
- Reach out to the county for questions.
- A title company may be able to assist as well.
- Research to see if there is a maintenance agreement in place.
- Make sure the maintenance agreement is easy to understand and well defined.
- What happens if homeowners do not pay their part?
- Is there language in the agreement to file a lien?
- When was the last time maintenance was performed on the road?
- Check to see if there are any other easements.
Of course, the county website comes with a disclaimer of no warranties, so it's best to verify the status of the each rather than relying on the list of county maintained roads on the website.

The Escambia County School District approved the purchase of 32 acres of land in 2015 for the construction of a new middle school in Beulah.
This middle school is part of a larger plan that includes a new elementary school and other renovations to relieve overcrowding issues for the north Escambia schools.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held October 28, 2016 for the new Beulah Middle School located at 6000 West Nine Mile Road, which was previously the Coastal Airport.
The plans for the school estimate the cost to be $45 to $48 million and will have the capacity of around 1,100 to 1,300 students. The current students from Woodham Middle and some from the overcrowded Ransom Middle School will be relocated to the New Beulah Middle School.
The new elementary school, Kingsfield Elementary, will cost around $25 million and be able to hold 800 students. It will be built on 10 to 12 acres of land next to Ransom Middle School that the district already owns. This will allow some students to be relocated from Beulah Elementary and Pine Meadow Elementary since they are having overcrowding issues as well.
In addition to new school construction, the district has plans for renovating the current Woodham Middle facilities to accommodate moving West Florida High School. The $3 to $5 million renovations are an effort to prepare Woodham Middle to be a high school and to provide improved athletic facilities to future students.
Both of these newly constructed schools hope to be ready by the start of the 2018-2019 school years and are funded from the half-cent sales tax. The half-cent sales tax funds the construction of new schools, school improvements, and updates to school technology. Although it will be several months until the completion of Beulah Middle School and Kingsfield Elementary School, it is awesome to check out the progress and see the half-cent sales tax funds be put into motion.
The renovations and new construction plans are the response from Escambia County School District to alleviate crowding issues in schools and prepare for projected growth in the Beulah, Cantonment, and north Escambia areas. Much of this growth is fueled by the creation of nearly 10,000 jobs as Navy Federal Credit Union Headquarters in Beulah.
