"Historic St. Andrews, a village by the bay where cultural attractions, entertainment, and commerce thrive."
Vision for St. Andrews
Under the Waterfronts Florida Program, St. Andrews developed a community-designed vision plan to revitalize their working waterfront and help make St. Andrews a better place to live and work. Through this process the community developed their vision, "Historic St. Andrews, a village by the bay where cultural attractions, entertainment, and commerce thrive" and have since worked hard to make it a reality.

Volunteer Partnership Committees
The St. Andrews Waterfront Partnership encourages volunteers to get involved with one of these committees: History, Design & Planning, or Economic Development. The work being accomplished by these committees helps to make St. Andrews a better place to live and work. There are a variety of other ways to be involved such as office work, outdoor projects, and attending periodic workshops. Membership forms and Partnership by-laws can be found online on our Documents & Maps page. For more information please contact Rob Rosner at 850-215-3871 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Monthly Partnership Meetings:
All meetings are held at the Panama City Publishing Building (St. Andrews Revitalization office) at 1134 Beck Avenue, Panama City, FL 32401
Chestnut Avenue Parking Lot Improvements: The Community of St. Andrews has envisioned over 20 years ago to improve the parking facilities of St. Andrews. This has been on-going process of purchasing land and improving for public parking. The Chestnut Avenue Parking Lot is located on Chestnut Avenue between 11th Court and 12th Street. The CRA has purchased this property in conjunction with the Publishing Museum Building. The final payment was made in February of 2012. In fiscal year 2013, the CRA has budgeted to improve the parking lot with wheel stops, ADA parking stalls, concrete entrance driveways, relocation of power poles, signage, and a sidewalk to connect to Beck Avenue along 12th Street.
Historic Lion Fountain at Oaks By The Bay Park: The horse trough, or more recently named lion fountain, came from the St. Andrew Methodist Church. The church purchased property behind their main building. The property fronting West 10th Street included a historic fountain the church donated to the City for relocation to Oaks by the Bay Park. The fountain possibly was originally at the Pines Hotel, and moved to the Manghum property on West 10th Street in the 1920’s. The fountain has been converted into a planter and grant has been received to improve the area around it.
The Panama City Publishing Building: The Partnership is continually working on projects to improve and market its Publishing Museum downtown. The Partnership provides tours to visitors, helps develop new displays and is even working to develop an audio/visual center in the museum to showcase historical documents and videos. Each month the Publishing Building also showcases new local artist exhibits for all to enjoy. The Museum has been awarded a grant from the Department of State for museum docent training, print-making classes, printing press demonstrations and more! The Museum has new hours: Mon-Fri 1:00 to 5:30 PM and 10-2 on the first Saturday of the month.
