Tyndall Air Force Base To Be Rebuilt As 'Air Base Of The Future'

A total of 18 Florida panhandle counties were affected by the storm. The report only discusses two affected counties. Recovery of the area Is estimated to be a 15+ year initiative. Solutions are needed to address the education, placement and housing of a workforce for the sustainable re-design and construction of the area. Utilizing the education programming component of the Sustainable Communities Development Program in Holmes Co. and working with the local colleges and trade schools partially address this need. This is an ideal environment for education programming providers.
