Panama City Beach City Council talks resort near Bid-a-Wee neighborhood
The Panama City Beach City Council met Thursday to discuss a potential multi-million dollar resort slated for the Bid-a-Wee neighborhood.
The project would include condos, single-family cottages, and a two-acre lagoon.
Developers were at the meeting. The project would cover both sides of Front Beach Road.
Mayor Mike Thomas says developers will get to build to a raised height of 203 feet.
Developers will have to maintain the access and egress of their project from Front Beach Road.
“The board voted the way they did to keep a gap in there where you could see the beach,” Mayor Mike Thomas explained. “They could have built 15 stories high all the way across their property and have the same amount of units.”
Mayor Thomas tells us there will be no access granted on Crane Street for the development project.
At the last meeting, Bid-a-Wee locals expressed their concerns with the noise the development could create as well as traffic coming through their neighborhood.
Developers estimate the project could take up to seven years to complete. They also have plans of enhancing Front Beach Road.
