District 5 County Commissioner Cindy Meadows' town hall meeting at Great Southern Cafe was such a success, she's already planning another one.

More than 50 South Walton residents came out to the Seaside restaurant to ask questions, voice concerns, and get some face time with their county representative.

Meadows welcomed those gathered and spoke briefly about what residents can look forward to in the future.

"I think you're going to see a lot of change in the county, a lot of new blood," said Meadows, specifically pointing to the county administrator position, which should be filled at the Jan. 22 BCC meeting.

After the recap and welcome, Meadows got down to business and opened the floor to those who wanted to ask questions or make comments.

The hot topics of the hour were the Tourist Development Council, modes of transportation along 30A, and recycling.

Lisa Davis with the Gulf Place Community Homeowners Association spoke out first asking for a status update on the TDC's proposed expansion of parking lots.
