    I heard some commercial development is getting ready to start at the Village at Blue Mountain? Does anyone know anything about this?

    You mean in the front of it? I think there is still a for sale sign and one on the very small lot next to that one- that one says "reduced".

    Don't hold your breath, even if it does happen it'll have to be tea rooms and lending libraries to meet the sound level requirements the residents there require.

    I rent a condo in the village. I wonder why they haven't done anything with the 30A facing property. It certainly isn't very appealing.

    Tell us more about "meeting the sound level requirements that the residents require there". How can the residents dictate "sound level requirements" and who would enforce such "requirements"?

    Developers have been trying to develop that land for years. When a restaurant was proposed the residents of the Pines behind the property stopped it before it ever made it through the planning commission. Unless all those folks have left it may be an uphill battle.

    We live in Blue Mountain Beach, and I would rather have a tea room, coffee shop or a bookstore than 10 real estate offices. Do not blame us for trying to keep the area from becoming overdeveloped with increased traffic and less ambience. I have spoken to many tourists who say that Blue Mountain Beach is their favorite area because it lacks all that development. 30a is losing it's small town feel. Many of us are fighting to keep it.

    I believe in August the BCC passed a new Noise Ordinance to deal with......

    .... the increasing noise levels from developments like this. According to the DFSH the new noise ordinance can be enforced by the Walton county Sheriff's Office or the Code Enforcement area and it is a 24/7 ordinance. The BCC with approval of the WCSO also enhanced the rules and fines for disturbing noises after 10:00p.m. Does anyone else have any more info on the new Noise Ordinance? :cool:

    I believe that the restaurant the residents objected to included a large open air roof deck with live music.

    There are numerous restaurants about which residents have been complaining about the noise. Not just the one you reference. That's why the BCC strengthened the noise ordinance.
