As we approach the weekend, a time for relaxing, we note that there is a more pressing matter just around the corner. On Monday, April 20, 2015, beginning at 4:00 p.m. at the Emerald Coast Middle School the Walton County Board of County Commissioners will hold the continuation of the public hearing to approve or deny the development known as the Re-Design of Chateau 30A. You are likely more familiar with this development by it’s commercial name of Hampton Inn. The Commission has already heard testimony. The chair has said that they will hear the remaining public comment. The issues to be discussed at this meeting include compatibility; preservation; planning procedures concerning lot splits, platting, and development orders; and of course driveway cuts along 30A. These are only a few of the concerns being raised by residents, property owners, and visitors. You can attend this public hearing. You can have your say concerning this development. You have a right to be heard. Feel free to review information about this project by going to http://lovemy30a.com.
