    Can someone report on how this group was given 400,000 to research and design for more parking and come back with 2 plans 18 to 25 million that reduces the amount of parking?

    This is my curiosity.

    Hmmmm…Let’s see…citizens have an invitaion to hear a “presentation” and “information” about two predetermined, unacceptable “alterntives.” Perhaps a meeting to develop a more reasoned, far less expensive, parking space creating, solution to address Pensacola Beach growth isses would be more beneficial. The meetings as offered will likely produce lots of frustration in those who seek an answer about why we are left with only these two “alternatives.”

    Beach mafia pulling the strings and you know who they are. Baskerville Donovan laughing all the way to the bank – again. It appears the answer to all of our problems is to just build something – anything – regardless of whether we need it or not. This gig is right out of the Maritime Park playbook – let the stupid taxpayers pay for our shiny new toy.

    That they are considering either of the plans shows how out of touch with reality the county commissioners are.

    18 million or 25 million, it makes no difference to politicians. Where/what is the benefit to citizens?

    Sorry the commissioers are in someone’s pockets or they are fools, plain and simple.
