And I quote “…may know more then us locals.”



I posted and replied with facts on what I thought was a discussion board, not a place where the my replies were met with the ‘Local’ card or “long time resident/discussion poster”.
That rebuttal is old and played out.

Never said I knew more, never called someone a bully, never flexed on being a newcomer. Do you pay anymore taxes to Walton than I do? Measuring tenure in a neighborhood, county or discussion board doesn’t mean your opinion matters anymore than someone else’s.

Also, great deflection and response to any of my questions and focus on the clutching of your pearls.

P.S. I can afford a Porsche and would like to buy one locally and fill it up with s**t ton of knick knacks and paddy wacks from Target

I know this is an old post, month and a half old now. I live over in Destin, and a Porsche dealer (Orr) and a Target are very available, already. I"m another one of those who might buy a Porsche if I want one, but I don't. Enough with German cars, personally speaking :D

Let me just say that the 98 corridor through Walton might seem empty to many outsiders, but to those of us who live in the region, it's needed to remain that way. Everything anyone can want is located not far away, here in Destin, and even across the pass over into FWB. I also know that change is already here, in the way people shop and buy, and Commercial retail construction will not be needed in the future, more than what is already here.

I'm not anti-progress, but I am anti-excess. We have excess already, and we've had it for years. No need to alter the landscape and environment of 98 in So Wal with yet more retail and strip mall construction. There's already plenty, not at full capacity, all around.

Every piece of private property along 98 in SoWal is quickly being developed. There is no stopping it but we can have high standards to the way property is developed, density, and appearance. Although not sure if much is going to change now that the barn door is open.
