    So, then in reality...the ordinance is not really intended to protect anything.
    More...to stop one property owner from developing his property, while allowing those "already in" to continue to enjoy the development of their property.

    It's more complex than that. For instance, if current home owners were to have their homes destroyed they would not be able to build back to present size but would have to conform to the ordinance. The ordinance effectively devalues property bought at a premium. There are several past threads explaining it.

    And meanwhile:
    one property owner is denied developing his property, while allowing those "already in" to continue to enjoy the development of their property.

    After every ordinance is passed, the new developers have to conformed to the new ordinance. This has been going on since the beginning of the legal system. Not sure I understand your gripe.

    Im not talking about new 1st tier or major development of larger tracts.
    I'm talking sbout an already plated area where it's 99% built out and along comes one who has a new set of new rules.
    I'm all for development regs. But there needs to be common sense.

    Look at Grayton just south of 30A for example. Pandora's, Hibiscus, etc.
    Go try and develop the vacant nearby property and let me know how that works out for ya. LoL

    Who reviewed the project? Seems like some pretty big issues should have gotten it immediately rejected. Isn't that why we have a planning department?

    Don't forget that the informational meeting is tonight. Please come and learn about this development. While construction has already started, if the court determines that it is not legal, they will have to take it down.

    If that's not putting the cart before the horse, I don't know what is...

    This is so typical.. Unless these people have a building permit issued by the county, how in the world are they allowed to start construction?? Has anyone called code enforcement or inquired?

    I'm pretty sure they have a building permit.

    The Zoning Board appeals hearing is tonight at the Courthouse annex at 6 PM. Please come and learn about this development which should have not been permitted. If the zoning board overturns the development order than the current owner will have to tear down the structure because it was started after the appeal had been filed.

    Which will likely be their argument. Well we already started....

    Has this board ever denied anything?

    Looks like the building is almost complete. There have been fences put up to block the connection to Old Florida Fish House. How is this new place going to have enough parking? Anyone know what is going in here?

    That seems to be the $100,000 dollar question - I am at Buddy's Seafood Market next door weekly and no one there knows or has heard.

    So it appears their CLUC has been approved. The applicant submitted a new application with a new floor plan that shows no seating proposed. The new application is dated 5/18/18. The CLUC approval signed by Mac is dated 5/16/18. That’s amazing the County can approve something that fast! They’ve also applied for an alcohol permit for on-premise consumption. Can’t wait until some tables get set up on the boat dock and patio.

    Here's what I find funny: this business is DOA and they are too hard-headed to realize it. No parking, and they've not played nice with two local, very popular and well-thought of businesses. DOA.

    The plot thickens - Here is what the web site looks like today... Wonder what happened to the website? Is it possible the name changed??
