    It appears that #28 and #36- #40 all go together. It appears that the money from #28 will be used to purchase #36-#40. Per agenda for the BCC meeting Tuesday, April 11, 2017

    The county bought the 3 Seagrove parels for $5 million where a new regional beach access will be located across from Cafe Thirty-A. The TDC will try to get a better deal on the Miramar Beach parcel asking $4.24 million - original asking price $1.8 million. The Seacrest parcel was deemed too pricey also.

    Meanwhile the seawall at Legion Park has been collapsing into the bay for over a year. They placed a $10 orange plastic fence around it so I guess it's problem solved.

    I think its absolutely ridiculous to spend $16 million on PUBLIC ACCESS and then turn around and give 50% of it to beach vendors. WTF ?
