The meeting is on October 13th over at the Annex at Couthouse on 331. The changes are in RED. I would suggest you read it carefully because it will affect many of our out of state owners of homes in the Grayton Area. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns and I will direct them to Mr. Demers, or you can contact him at

I emailed Mr. Demers to get clarification...this is his response:

Ms Morrell,

You are correct that if this is approved, in order to obtain a beach driving permit:
1. You must be a permanent resident of Walton County.
2. You must own real property in Walton County,
3. The vehicle being registered must be in the name of the real property owner/resident.

There are several ways to prove that you meet the above requirements; some of them are listed in the draft ordinance. There is no provision for non-residents in Grayton to be exempt from this new provision. I will provide your email to the County Administrator to be included as public comment to the Board of County Commissioners.

These changes are being considered in order to reduce the number of vehicles allowed on the beach. If we don't find a way to reduce the beach traffic, we may loose the ability for anyone to access the beach with vehicles. I am sure that other suggestions on how to reduce the beach traffic are welcome and would be considered.

Thank you,
Gerry A. Demers,
