⚡️So loss of #customaryuse is no big deal in #SouthWalton County?

ℹ️"South Walton currently has over 50 public beach access points, including 8 Regional Public Beach Accesses complete with parking, restroom facilities, and lifeguards."

🔥EIGHT with parking!

⁉️For an area that is attracting nearly 4 million visitors per year?

🏖️So...probably very difficult to find parking.

🌊And you need to walk BELOW the MEAN HIGH TIDE LINE. Translation: "visitors," i.e. those without beachfront property (or not renting), must walk on wet sand or in the water.

SCANDAL #7
It’s official, FL bill HB 631 is now a law and could affect a beach near you even if you don’t live in Florida. Walton County residents were out in droves yesterday (July 1st) to protest this new law, signed by Governor Rick Scott last month.

This new #Florida law invalidates local municipalities' #customaryuse ordinances and effectively locks the general public out of using the best parts of Florida’s beaches—unless they can afford to rent (or buy) beachfront property. Lawsuits are pending. #standyoursand
🚫HB 631 bans local municipalities from adopting ordinances to regulate public access to Florida’s beaches above the mean water line.

⁉️But first, where’s the mean water line?

💥In short, it's where everyone wants to sit when they're at the beach.
