SPEAKING OUT: Solutions to tourists’ impact — past, present, and future

Published: Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 04:02 PM.

What is the solution? What needs to be provided by our county government?

Here are suggestions to give to our commissioners:

*Widen 30A to include an exclusive lane for fast bikes and golf carts.

*Require Regional Utilities to upgrade the reliability of the water mains.

*Require development of several parking areas on appropriately located county land on arteries running north and south.

*Endorse a privately owned and operated transportation system in South Walton and add service to and from north Walton.

*Create a Gulf-front boardwalk from one end of the county to the other, wide enough for all to enjoy, i.e., pedestrians to walk and jog, allow recreational, slow bikes, and have sheriff deputies patrol the boardwalk on bikes, which will keep them fit.
