Donkey was referring to a pumpjack commonly used to pump oil. They may be different but they both would negatively affect the area. I feel that overall property values trump one persons property rights. Which is why I made the oil/fracking comparison. 30A has done extremely well because of the new urbanism developments and the ordinances that have for a most part kept out all the crap that you see in PCB and Destin/Ft Walton. 50 ft height limit on building, establiments closing at 2am vs 4 am, bike rentals vs scooter rentals, cracking down on underage drinking, family friendly establishments vs night clubs, pawn shops, tattoo/piercing, ect, low rise condos and single family communities vs chain hotel/motels, and apartment complex, the list goes on and on. My point is allowing a Hampton Inn to come in is going against everything that made 30A flourish into what it is now.
