    Sandestin Vote A Bad Omen for South Walton's future
    3/16/2017

    The Walton County Board of County Commissioners voted Tuesday, March 14, 2017 to approve the Sandestin development proposal that allows multiple high rises, deletion of active recreation areas, redefinition of open space, thousands of additional residential units and thousands of commercial square footage to a road system that can hardly accommodate existing development. It was no surprise that Commissioners Chapman, Jones, Anderson voted to approve. Commissioner Comander and Nipper understood the consequences of such a plan and voted no.

    The approval was no surprise. The motion was made by Anderson whose campaign was heavily funded by both the developers and their Destin attorney. It was no surprise that Jones voted yes as she has been" in bed " with the developers and attorneys since they helped her regain a Commission seat she lost in 2012. She also drove Anderson to his campaign events openly supporting him in the 2016 election. So we expect these two to vote the same on 99% of the BOCC votes. Somewhat surprising is Chapman's vote because we thought he was interested in making sure adequate infrastructure was in place before boatloads of new development was approved. We guessed wrong. We wonder what
    or who pushed him to ignore resident's concerns.

    This approval is a bad omen for the quality of life and future of South Walton. If the BCC threesome can be persuaded to count roads as open space, approve a high rise on a sensitive island, what else can they be persuaded to do? When it comes to overdevelopment of coastal south Walton, decisions made by these three will determine the value of your home and investment, the quality of life in your neighborhood, and your ability to get out of your driveway and onto congested roads.

    Overdevelopment will happen if the citizens don't rise up and take back control of their government.
    No wonder the developers, many attorneys , and most of the BCC are opposed to incorporation.
    They might lose their power over your life South Walton.
