Deja Vu For Panama City Beach Voters

About 350 voters went to the polls Tuesday and again rejected plans to move, combine, swap or sell easements off Beach Blvd. in the long Beach area.

Panama City Beach’s city charter requires a public vote before the city can move, sell, swap or change any easements to the beach.

A condominium developer had proposed swapping easements; donating a public parking lot and offering another easement for sale to help located a high-rise project on adjacent property.

Beach voters went to the polls in the special election and voted two to one against the three plans. It’s the second times in recent years beach voters have turned thumbs down on the project.
