    Artisan Square new Mixed-Use Development in Point Washington at Hwy 395 & Eden Drive

    You say the citizens were concerned about outdoor sound and the developer agreed to an outdoor sound variance. What "outdoor sound" were the citizens concerned about and what "variance" did the developer agree to to address the citizens concerns? Thanks.

    Beach Chair vendor moved my chairs

    I don't believe Commissioner Meadows needs to "lurk" anywhere. I have found C. Meadows to be forthright, objective, helpful and caring about the MANY issues facing our 30-A. She is truly one of the least politicized public officials with which I have dealt. Bring your issue to her and she will...

    Gulf Place vs. Village of South Walton

    Blue Mountain is great. Best ice cream on 30-A at Blue Mountain Creamery. Other good restaurants. Gulf Place has an excellent pizza place ( Pizza by the Sea) especially their lunch special and The Perfect Pig.... maybe the best restaurant on 30-A. Try their grouper fish dinner and their pork...

    Restaurant, cafe, coffee joint suggestions...

    My gosh, all the guy was asking about was good restaurant recommendations when he and his family come down for a visit. Now you are threatening him with your " 30-A mafia" familia crap. Well that makes you another LOCAL a$$hole. Add that to the "chair vendor I'll do what I want to" quote makes...

    Beach Vendor Meeting

    Seems like there is a lot of this elitist narcissistic " I'll do whatever I want to" attitude in the "neighborhood" and not just from the local beach boys.

    Recommendations/Not As Crowded

    The beach chair companies are hogging the beaches on the west end also especially on the west side of Ed Walline park. The BCC needs to address this issue. What gives the chair companies the right to take up what little of the beach there is left??!!

    low speed vehicles rules?

    I don't understand your response. The bike path has numerous signs stating "No Motorized Vehicles". On numerous occasions I have witnessed LSV's driving on the bike path. Yes, LSV's and usually with underage drivers and passengers. I guess their Daddy's told them to stay off the highway after...

    Hampton Inn Seagrove Beach on Chateau Hotel Property

    Yes, thanks TDC for your contributions in first suffocating the area and now choking it to death. After the demise of 30-A the TDC and hippiechick can move on to the next pristine area and destroy it..... if there are any areas like 30-A left to kill off.

    Comerical noise and light pollution on 30A

    Have no problem with law abiding businesses. The problem is with those that hide their avarice behind the law while totally disrespecting their neighbors. The laws regarding loud noise are changing and more is to come. I believe I will spend my efforts on those changes.

    Comerical noise and light pollution on 30A

    Andy, keep in mind the topic is "Commercial noise and light pollution". And loud noise is an environmental pollution just the same as any other pollutant. Your narrow view is that loud noise from one property does not carry to multiple properties where those property owners right to the peaceful...

    Comerical noise and light pollution on 30A

    I'm not sure I understand your post. Are you saying that if one party is abusing the right of peaceful enjoyment of another's property ( home) by being the source of loud noise(s) that the party suffering from the environmental noise pollution should "move" or just sit on their back porch and...

    I know exactly what you are saying but it still is unfathomable to me when these idiots misinterpret their stupidity for "coolness". I can still see the moron dad having his less than teenage daughter drive very fast down the bike path away from Blue Mountain Creamery. Unbelievable at the...

    low speed vehicles rules?

    Here's one more "whine". Tell your moron LSV drivers to stay off the "no motorized vehicles" bike path. They should at least be able to read much less act responsibly.

    Hampton Inn Seagrove Beach on Chateau Hotel Property

    I believe your key words here are "don't give a rat's ass what they build" which is the issue with your and the others who really don't "give a rat's ass" about the unique and special quality of life that is 30-A that those of us who do care are trying to preserve and protect.

    Hampton Inn Seagrove Beach on Chateau Hotel Property

    Like your other two posts, WHAT's YOUR POINT? I'll favor "the rich people's opinion" over your advocacy for a chain hotel that simply does not belong on 30-A. YOU have something very special and unique with 30-A. Don't destroy that anymore than YOU already have.

    As reported on this Forum previously the BCC, the WCSO and the County Attorney cares as shown by the BCC along with the concurrence of the WCSO and County Attorney's office by passing Noise Ordinance 2014-16 on July 8, 2014. The previous Noise Ordinance 2003-09 was believed inadequate to address...

    Isn't it painfully apparent? Because it will make it even more worse. It will go from suffocating to strangling.

    Hello Walton TDC

    This is the way the beach will look when they build the new Hampton Inn which I am sure the TDC endorses also. What are these people thinking or do they bother to even think?

    Old messina space at gulf place

    Glad you are relieved. Wonder how relieved you will be when you are standing at the "Pearly Gates". That's when all the "corrections" will be done. Everyone to themselves but don't diss on anyone because you think they support The Lord. Don't guess you frequent Chick-fila either. Lordy, you...

    Village at Blue Mountain

    There are numerous restaurants about which residents have been complaining about the noise. Not just the one you reference. That's why the BCC strengthened the noise ordinance.

    Village at Blue Mountain

    I believe in August the BCC passed a new Noise Ordinance to deal with...... .... the increasing noise levels from developments like this. According to the DFSH the new noise ordinance can be enforced by the Walton county Sheriff's Office or the Code Enforcement area and it is a 24/7 ordinance...

    Local HOA's to be asked to Fund Turtle Express

    Your apology is graciously accepted. Thank you. Your other points are well taken. The problem with some HOA's is that they are subservient to controlling special interests and the vote of the homeowners is compromised. But that is another issue that will have to be dealt with on a HOA level.

    Local HOA's to be asked to Fund Turtle Express

    It's not your place to tell anyone to move or not. Or does being a "Parent" give you that right. Keep your advice for your children.

    Local HOA's to be asked to Fund Turtle Express

    So are you going to pay so that it will stop at your house? The businesses benefit from this so why should they object for paying for it? Most HOA assessments are excessive as they are. Certainly do not need an increase for this.

    It may be now! Really a good example of "Karma". Remember why The Smiling Fish lost its lease?

    Messina's at Gulf Place Shuts Doors

    That's exactly what I was thinking! And besides 98 BBQ is a very nice place to eat. The "ambiance" is the great food and friendly people. You just don 't find that everywhere these days.

    Messina's at Gulf Place Shuts Doors

    Wow, ten grand a month! Does the landlord think he is in Seaside/Water Color?!! Wonder what the landlord is thinking now after losing two quality tenants within a few months? No, make that three.... include the Smiling Fish. Wasn't it in the same location?

    Messina's at Gulf Place Shuts Doors

    That's an easy fix. Run over to 98 BBQ. One of the best BBQ's I've eaten. People are nice too.

    TDC Mandatory Post-Season Vendor Meeting 9/4/14

    Local, I know you are being facetious about Code Enforcement. Walton County's Code Enforcement department is a farce... and that is putting it nicely. I've never seen an area that is so afraid to do anything except pass the buck to some other area. WHY are they even there?!

    Decisions like that typically start with Management and or Ownership. What a narrow minded, short sighted and greedy decision. Unfortunate.

    TDC Mandatory Post-Season Vendor Meeting 9/4/14

    Really, what gives these beach chair-hog guys the right to set up their mostly uncomfortable chairs taking up their disproportionate share of what little beach is available? Their actions are growing like the cancerous greed they are exhibiting!

    Vote for Visit South Walton Logo

    It looks like a squiggly eyebrow and a mustache. Hey, let's head down to the South Walton ???? !! Well the good thing is it will not promote more "tourism". Looks like this one backfired on the TDC.

    Vote for Visit South Walton Logo

    I don't think anyone was happy with the logo as presented at the BCC Meeting last night... Even the ones who voted for it. Also, everyone talks about preserving the quality of life that SoWal is rapidly losing and then all the TDC Bagby guy could talk about was building more "commuter"parking...
