    Headland Ave meeting workshop was last night, vendor issues were not mentioned as it was solely a workshop for a neighborhood public access (NPA). Beachfront owners came out in force along with 723 Whisky Bravo restaurant (Moore) to thwart this proposed beach access by publicly speaking against it. This NPA only includes a walkover and a bike rack. The county owns the land and the walkover will lead to public beaches, TDC will pay for everything. Seems like a no brainer as this has been proposed and planned by TDC for several years. It will reduce the strain on other accesses in the area, encourage bike riding to beach, and will be an asset to the community. Instead once again, special interests seem to prevail. Watch the video and match contributions in public records..... Very sad for locals and tourists alike.

    In the past its been voted down consistently, except for allowing workshop. Not sure if it will ever return for a vote. All available accesses need to be developed and county owns this land, no purchase required, think long-term! Please write BCC, especially the three that voted no in the past.

    One of those three will have to bring it back to the agenda but since 2 are up for election they might could be persuaded.

    That is sad and a shame. If you can't find any joy living here and enjoy the simple beauty of the beach then you could never be happy anywhere.

    This is tragic. That a few adjacent homeowners can dictate what happens against 99.99999999% of the rest of us.

    If I were a business owner (real estate agent, restaurateur, rental property owner, etc.) I would favor maximum beach access. But it seems these folks, along with beach front owners (who probably never sit on the beach) are opposing the Headland access. Biting the hand that feeds you?

    This picture from a facebook post should explain everything on the need for the additional access in Seagrove. This is the Greenwood access just east of the proposed Headland neighborhood access. It is maxed out and based on facebook post, this appears to be late in afternoon. An additional access would relieve pressure on the existing beach access. As communities on 30A, we are trying to encourage bike riding to beach vs golf carts, car drop off, etc....but additional accesses are needed to continue this vision and prepare for future demand.

    Cecilia Jones is leading the fight not to open the headland access.....vote and screaming customary use while quietly teaming with beachfronters to get Tony elected. Lucifers daughter, you people are so fooled.
