You know , for Crawfordville to be bigger than Woodville , Sopchoppy, St. Marks , Have it's own WALMART , and BE THE COUNTY SEAT of Wakulla County , isnt it very strange that they don't Incorperate Crawfordville, but they do so to Sopchoppy and St. Marks?

^Makes me wonder if they're trying to avoid the title of Wakulla's Newest municipality. I was in Crawfordville not long ago taking pictures and I couldn't help but notice how unorganized it appeared to be. Without the county courthouse there in the middle I really wouldn't know where the town center was. I think the Wakulla Bank adds a nice touch to what I consider downtown Crawfordville yet nothing feels connected.

I like Crawfordville for the fact that most of the development seems to be strung along HWY 319, however, I don't like the fact that in many places they've built very close to the roadway which could in the future present obstacles for expanding the undivided 2 lane road to perhaps 4 or 6 lanes. It also seems the community needs to work harder to make itself more pedestrian friendly. In many areas, even around the County Courthouse, there were no sidewalks.

All in all, I think Crawfordville is poised to become a player in the Capitol Region. I don't think it needs to incorporate necessarily, however I do see a need to develop some organization as it grows.

Yes, It seems as though they need some planners.

Plan for Downtown Crawfordville in the Works

The Vision Plan, developed by Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., one of the country's premier design consulting firms, was a result of numerous public meetings held since 2005 with area businesses, residents and citizens. The plan defines the look and feel (vision) of Crawfordville as Wakulla County’s "Downtown".

Primarily based on existing land use and developable areas, the plan will use existing and planned U.S. 319 improvements and an alternative construction strategy to meet the Chamber “Our Town Project” goal. The plan would be managed and funded through a public/ private partnership similar to the Blueprint 2000 plan in Tallahassee.

So glad to see Wakulla is trying to fix Crawfordville. Me and the wife once considered purchasing a house there but could not look beyond the lack of planning in the area. Perhaps we may reconsider.

Some recent happenings in Crawfordville worth noting:

Crawfordville is getting a Zaxby's: Near the Beef-o-Bradys there, across the street from the Burger King that recently opened crews are prepping the site for the fast-casual Chicken restaurant.

Hammaknockers BBQ is relocating

Bay Leaf Market: Serving coffee, used books, and organic foods is now open.

There is a new EMS/Fire Station in the works

Victor's Restaurant closed and has been replaced by a new Mexican Restaurant that some locals claim is better than el Jalisco.

:side note: I'm also told Wakulla has an issue with Sovereign citizens. Very random... I know!
