Looked pretty weak and a clear case of NIMBY but also very disappointing nothing can be done anymore without beach owners complaining. Or people in general.
The BFOs all say the county should get more "public" access... NIMBY for sure. The county has owned this property for a while havent they?

Walton County had the property under lease from the Bureau of Land Management beginning in 1992, then it was conveyed to Walton County about seven years ago.
What is the residents' objection to developing the access? Let me guess, an increase risk of damage from storms. BS. We all know they simply don't want people on "their" beach.

The Stallworth land owned by the county is mitigation land for the development. It was never meant to be a public park.

Mitigation for what? Why not land at the front of the development we could access instead of the rear behind a gate?

It's Beach Mouse habitat not intended for public use.
Thanks for the info. I suppose it would make sense for the county to remove it from their beach access inventory. It borders the state park so perhaps it should be given to the state to extend their boundary a bit.
