    There's new oil rigs in BMB so that we can restore the shoreline.

    Developers building condo project with promised private access with amenities.

    The proposed lot is in BMB.

    BMB residents don't want it there.

    ...and if the developer cannot provide public access, there could be trouble, as many people who have reservations on the condos, might be able to use that as a way to get out of their contracts, which would leave the developer and the lender in a heap of mess, while leaving a ghost village on the corner of 83/30A. There is serious precedent which will be set by the decisions made regarding this private access for an 80 unit condo in this neighborhood zoned for a maximum of 8 units per acre.

    how did/do they plan to keep this access private and exclude others from using this so called "private access."

    why did they purchase another lot for this purpose after they had units under contract?

    They have mentioned placing a gate on the north and south ends of the lot. My guess is that one will need an access card to gain entry. That is only a guess, as I have not heard how access will be granted.

    Your second question is a little vague. I am not sure if you are asking why they purchased a second lot, or why they didn't have a lot purchased with private access approved prior to promising it and taking reservations. :dunno:

    The first lot they purchased for access is zoned preservation residential which I believe limits density to two units per acre. The second lot which they purchased is zoned NPA Infill with limits on max density to 8 units per acre, and the infill zoned lot may allow for a little more liberal uses. I have not looked at the zoning for either of these two properties, but that zoning info was coming from the representatives of the developer. According to the developer's representative, it is their intent to sell the other lot, when they are allowed to use the one lot for private access.

    I don't understand your statement. Item 6 is for the lot to the west of the 83 public access. Item 12 is not for the gulf front lot to the east of the 83 public access. Rather, it is for the property on the corner of 30A and 83. They are looking to put in a dock on Big Redfish Lake on the north side of 83, I guess.

    I don't believe the pontoon boat has left the dock. I was there on maybe Tuesday this week, and I noticed that the chrome-plated prop was getting rusty. Since there is not a lauch on Big Redfish, I am curious as to how they dumped the boat into the lake. :dunno: Note that the pontoon boat is for the other project, Sanctuary at Redfish.

    I will miss the meeting due to other scheduled events.

    I do note one thing. In number 6 in the post above, the land area is listed at 0.63 ? acres, which would equate to a max density of only FIVE homes on this property. The developer's attorney likes throwing around the number as eight units per acre, without noting that they do not own an acre. I believe the Prop Appr's office list the property as consisting of more than 0.63 ? acres. I wonder if some of it washed away over the last year few years.

    Love to know how the meeting goes. Maybe you can ask some of your buddies near you how it went. I am sure it is going to get approved just wondering what impact it is going to really have on the community long term.

    Bet the condo owners are upset about it not getting approved too. They have a lot to loose if this does not get approved soon. Suppose to close early next month without the PBA and now sounds like the Dock on Redfish Lake.

    LyingFish trailer park is making promises probably to the community and local persuaders down there and will get it done.

    edroedrog I am confused - I took this post above to mean we could call your office to get details but the post below indicates maybe you copied the notice above and it is referring to a county office?



    What makes you so sure?


    Do you mean the developers?



    What is PBA? What is supposed to close next month?


    edroedrog, you seem to be heavily involved and I appreciate your info but can you be more clear about things? What do you mean about LyingFish trailer park???

    I think PBA is his abbreviation for Private Beach Access, but that is a confusing abbrev, because it could also stand for Public Beach Access.

    As for the "LyingFish trailer park," he is probably referring to the sales trailer for Redfish Village. I haven't been there and cannot speak to edroedrog's remarks. Maybe he experienced something bad. :dunno: I do know a few Realtors with H20 Properties who I believe to be the Broker handling the sales, and believe them to be good, honest people. Personally, I have a problem with the sales team getting bashed like they are for promoting a property with plans for a private beach access. The private beach access is beside the point. I am against it personally for several reasons. When an agent takes on selling a development, he or she does so with the nothing more than the developers' good faith in what they are promising. In this particular case, the developer had planned/is planning a private beach access. It is the first thing promoted in their flyers which they handed out, and one of only four ammenities noted for the entire development. I think their intention of having one was/is in good faith. The Broker would have no reason not to think so. It is not a lie to promote your plans for a development, even if the plans change. If the plans do not go through as promoted, that is not a blatent lie. It is a change of plans, for the good or the bad. If the change is a material fact, the seller may be in breach of the contract and the buyers may have a way out without penalty. A lawyer could be helpful in determining whether or not that is the case here. Still, if the Private Beach Access doesn't get permitted, I don't believe the Developer, Broker or their agents were lying if they were legitamately trying to get the private access. In this case, I believe the developer paid well over $8M to procure the two lots in hopes of getting that private access. I believe they are still acting in good faith to do just that. I don't agree with their decision to put in a private access, but that is no reason to say that they are lyers. The developers may have screwed themselves, but their punishment will be in financial terms. This little case should be one for the text books of what not to do. I don't envy them at all, nor do I envy the buyers who intended to sell their units at the closing table. Who will get lucky, is yet to be determined.

    I understand if you don't comprehend my point on the developers trying to act in good faith. It does enter a shady bit of gray, but I do believe them to be trying to do what they planned and promoted.

    Back to the access, will someone please accurately report on the meeting from this morning?
