On July 1st, 2018 former Governor Rick Scott signed into law a very unpopular bill that singled out Walton County to privatize our beaches. A year later, there remains confusion and litigation about the Public's use of Florida Beaches. Join us to mark this date as we affirm the words of the Supreme Court ruling from 1974:
“[n]o part of Florida is more exclusively hers, nor more properly utilized by her people than her beaches. And the right of the public of access to, and enjoyment of, Florida’s oceans and beaches has long been recognized by this Court.”
Join with me and others as we gather to affirm our right to use these Beaches.
