    The Chateau is a proposed 90 room hotel going before the county on December 11 at 5pm. the location is Seagrove Beach, near the First Baptist Church on 30A. I can't imagine the impact to this area, parking, beach access??? What are your thoughts?

    Edit - details added ... proposed 4-story, 90-room Hampton Inn

    It's not compatible with the neighborhood. It will be a nightmare for the Eastern Lake Road beach accesses, and thus neighbors. Is the meeting in the Annex or DeFunk?

    I think it's time to halt all development. Our fragile environment is over maximum capacity. We're on a downhill slope and the only sensible thing to do is stop killing what makes the area special.

    Is this the St. Joe project that was slated to go in on 30a next to the Baptist Church in front of the storage facility? Can't imagine a 90 room hotel when both Pearl and Watercolor Inn are only 60. This is madness and when you consider that a 125 room hotel going in at 30a/98 is already approved. When will the County stop and have the balls to decline these projects as inappropriate?

    I'm pretty sure that hotel project by Rosemary has gone belly up. Lots of weeds and no action for months.

    I heard it was Chateau 30a Condos with retail in the front, by the church and in front of Greenway.

    Even if it has, how long do you think it's going to take before something similar is built there. A piece of land with such high visibility.

    Clearly the demand isn't.

    Kind of makes you wish we could have a sub tropical version of ice hotels...great for four months and then they go away! This is not keeping the Grove weird.

    Call or email Brian Underwood with your opposition. He keeps a list of those opposing and will submit to the Planning Commission. 850-267-1955 or undbrian@co.Walton.fl.us.

    Why don't they put the hotels on 98 and 331? We are very short on affordable hotels.

    All we need is an AWESOME wedding house that sleeps 30 somewhere in the already congested Seagrove area...

    Maybe two AWESOME wedding houses...

    Lots of beach access there too.

    Here's to 2015...

    Not to hijack the thread, but how about item #4, The Regal at Seagrove, a 31 unit condominium just east of Beach Crest. Note the use of the term "and associated infrastructure". That's pretty vague.
