Unfortunately, with plan 3D the 20 thousand or so people living in South Walton will only have one commissioner that will be located near them, so 2/5 of the people living in Walton County will in all practicality have only one commissioner that they'll be in proximity to contact in person to personally listen to their concerns on a day by day basis. We could probably tract calls and visits. The other 30 thousand or 3/5 or so people living of the rest of the county will be close to four commissioners to listen to their concerns in a meaningful manner. Plan 3D is not a plan for the people of Walton County. It is not compact, contiguous, reflect communities of interest nor maintain core of prior district. These guidelines were published in documents distributed at redistricting meetings and even hung on the wall. Picture of these guidelines were published in paper hanging behind committee. Guess they didn't turn around to read, much less comprehend and follow. They were perhaps only up there for our viewing pleasure. There were several plans that better followed these rules used in redistricting case law and met the needs of all the citizens of Walton County. Plan 3D not only splits up Sandestin, it also takes out Pt. Washington and the new Emerald Coast Middle School from South Walton district, and furthermore splits up the planned community of WaterSound which has two new large builders poised to begin in WaterSound North. Mostly, if not only, South Walton residents showed up for new West Bay Airport 388 road which will go through or near WaterSound North. This road will impact new school, and evacuation and jobs for South Walton. The being compact or contiquous points or respecting communities of interest or keeping core districts together aren't just a pirate's code to be followed as whimsical guidelines until it doesn't fit those in control's needs or development plans. They are guidelines for the people. All the people of Walton County. People who work, go to school, travel and evacuate. That South Walton is just a beach community is a shallow, manipulative description of who South Walton really is. Guess pirates rule in Walton County.
