there's nothing wrong with progress, but sadly the powers that be in this area think progress is tearing down natural charm and the environment in favor of some crappy strip malls or heinously tacky developments mistakenly marketed as "luxury".
too bad there aren't enough experienced community planner, developers and local leadership who understan the real way to make money.
the way things have been done are really sad...i'm so grateful for the real estate crash, hopefully it will prevent any further idiocy.
infrastructure like a good airport, healthcare, services, culture and evacuation routes will actually contribute to the value of the community more.
the stupid little "what should we care what walton county thinks" is a typical byproduct of the "i got mines" ghetto attitude of local developers business people who have not been harbingers of progress but rather lorded over their fuedal terroritories robbing from the communities instead of contributing to them. what makes it worse? the peasants who sucked at the teat of the tyrants believing that stealing from the rich was going to create opportunity for them and build their region.
not too smart bubba. not too smart.
All of us counties should care if the airport is put in Bay County. I think all of us counties truly love bay county and are all glad joe owned the land to give away for the airport. Us counties are sensitive peoples here.
Raven theys some pipple here who are real estate agents so dont talk so loud about you bein happy bout this real estate crash....they mite not lack it or sumptin.......
no war for oil?
I'm new to this whole post thing, but we love coming down to the Gulf/Destin area. Being from Nebraska the only way to fly is NWA and it's horrible and expensive. A new airport might allow for more options for those of us that cannot easily get down here.
Thats what its all about, easier access. Its the people from Panama City not the beach that are fighting it. I grew up over there and they have always fought progress.
Actually with all the hicks around here we don't really need an airport, because they don't have anywhere to go.
