Reinventing the wheel: Becnel, homeowners disagree on Ferris wheel

Published: Monday, August 5, 2013 at 10:51 AM.

What upset owners the most about the new Ferris wheel placement was that Becnel never attempted to talk to the association about it, according to Godwin. Owners don't just want the wheel moved, they now don’t want it at all.

"I don't think we'd support it anywhere in Sandestin," Godwin said.

Gateway Condo Association worked closely with Sandestin Owners Association to stop the wheel from turning in to Baytowne Wharf. They've attended meetings, made phone calls and sent letters to The Sun and the BCC.

"We are in this fight together," he said.

Godwin notes that the BCC, especially Meadows and Commissioner Sara Comander, have been a pleasure to work with.

"Cindy Meadows has been a princess and gets it right as to what an elected official should be," he said.
