Lynn Haven Drops Annexation Effort

Lynn Haven city leaders have decided to give up an annexation fight. The decision came at a special called meeting Wednesday morning.

Lynn Haven had been trying to annex 22 acres north of the Bailey Bridge, off Grassy Point Road.

The landowner, North Bay Development Co., wants to put in a subdivision on the land which is now in an unincorporated area.

Lynn Haven had hoped to provide municipal services like water, sewer, police and fire protection to the subdivision.

In July, a local judge ruled against Lynn Haven, and The First District Court of Appeals recently upheld that decision.
