After months of debate, building height limits in Panama City have finally been set. Panama City commissioners voted 4 to 1 to approve a 120-foot height limit, which is around 12 stories.
Developers may be able to build an additional 30 feet higher if they create wider setbacks or public access areas.
Some commissioners are not completely satisfied with the ordinance, but say it's the best compromise.
Some areas, like the Cove and Millville historic districts, could face harsher height restrictions. The commission plans to take up a 30-foot height limit for those two areas in future meetings.
