It looks like Panama City will not impose any building restrictions in the downtown area for now.

Commissioners voted 5 to 0 against a moratorium on new development.

Some city officials proposed the moratorium after a developer revealed plans for a 29-story condo on Beach Drive.

Commissioners say the city doesn't have the infrastructure to support a 300-foot-high building, but they didn't want to ban all development, so they plan to come up with height limits and setbacks without imposing the building ban.
