After almost a year of meetings, applications and waiting, Sandestin owner Tom Becnel has "tabled" the proposed Ferris wheel for now.
"Mr. Becnel has 'tabled' the Ferris wheel project so he can attend to other items," said Laurie Hobbs, director of public relations and marketing at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort.
Meadows and Sandestin homeowners argued that the 60-foot ride was a "skyline dominating issue."
William Godwin, president of the Gateway at Baytowne Wharf Condominium Association, which opposed the project, was pleased with the news.
"This bodes well for the future in that plans of this magnitude can be discussed between all parties that have an interest in such matters prior to attempted implementation,” he said.
