Grant will help protect mission

NICEVILLE, Fla. -- The city was awarded a $25,000 grant to prevent future development from impeding missions at Eglin Air Force Base. The grant is from the Florida Defense Support Task Force. Niceville will use it to upgrade mapping software to track data on where the city should regulate development so as not to interfere with any base missions, especially regarding the F-35 fighter jets that fly over the city.
