    This sounds like the typical BS that goes on. The people who want the beach access don't want to deal with the consequences so they try to push it off on their neighbors. So hypocritical

    VoiceOfReason, you are only 3+ months behind the times on an issue that has already been reviewed and dropped.

    So...was part of a conversation recently with a Cypress Dunes homeowner and they said that there is a walkover in the works, "approved but it's hush hush". "Want to keep the riff raff" out...

    Any truth to this, or is a walkover from Cypress Dunes into Topsail a permanent no-go?

    Most of us remember this nonsense the first go around, thankfully it failed.

    I too have heard rumblings this may resurface again, but not to the extent of your comment.

    Perhaps they just tipped the hat and it will give those opposed (many), more time to fight it.

    I wonder how either of the two new BCC Members felt about it the first time and if they've changed their minds. Good question for an interview from a paper.

    I'd also like to know the stance of A Better South Walton on this.

    Perhaps having the prior park ranger now working at the TDC has opened new doors...

    It's my understanding from a Cypress Dunes resident that the beach walkover into Topsail is approved by the state and construction will start within a month. Can anyone corroborate this? Or is it just wishful thinking on the part of the resident?

    I hope its wishful thinking...

    No Walkover into Topsail!!!

    Do you know the residents name or anyone claiming to have accomplished this? Perhaps they have Emails sent in to the TDC and State that are public record? If so Private Message me, don't post on here. Not cool.

    One is now the Director of Administration at the TDC...

    Does SoWal site get any funds from the TDC?

    Fair question. Please don't delete post.

    Interesting. I still hear talk about this, but nothing to suggest that it will fly. Just the desire to have it happen. Around here, though, who knows?

    This subject will be back soon, unfortunately for the residents of Cypress Dunes there is no way around the public process. Despite their attempts to work in the shadows to make it happen. The unit management plan for Topsail is due to be updated this year and that's how they would have to get it "approved." However there is a public comment period in that process. So I encourage everyone to be aware and attend the meeting and/or give input to park planning when it comes back up. When it happens details will be posted on this site among other places.
