Dave, I understand why you question this, but I'm absolutely comfortable that a lot of it was behavior and density driven. If you go to meetings, you know how often variances and waivers are allowed, so density is an issue between the number of residences built (and perhaps put on weekly rental) and over 4 MILLION visitors. Take a representative sample and tell me how many people out of 4 Million don't think the rules apply to them or have no idea what the rules are. It's not that hard to understand.I ask again, is this really about behavior on the beaches? Or, is it about private property rights zealots pushing to exclude people from the beaches? Records are records; they can’t be altered or influenced. Has anyone looked back over the last 10 years to see how many complaints have occurred to the sheriff’s department or code enforcement from beachfront owners about behavior on the beaches? I know the answer. Do you?
