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

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

*Other 30A communities will have to allow widening also

*Unlike many counties, Walton County owns a majority of the land and the right of ways that need to be dedicated for the use of those of us who live here and the tourists who come to enjoy our paradise

*While our cherished Coastal Dune Lakes will be modestly affected by the widening of 30A, the impact would not be any more than what occurred when 30A was created

 With the voices of many forward thinking Walton residents being heard at BCC meetings, action will begin. I believe the overnight tourist impact is here to stay, even when hurricanes and oil spills hit us; but, we can overcome those. Join me in the urgent demand for proper and well-engineered improvements to our wonderful area for the betterment of all.
