Yeager to CCA: “Confident” county will end up with lighthouse

Published: Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 12:36 PM.

The Coastal Community Association of Gulf County, made up of homeowners on the Cape and surrounding areas, held its annual meeting last week to receive and discuss reports from the Tourist Development Council, Port Authority, Schools and many other area organizations.

Hot topics included the removal of an egress at State 30A and the Cape San Blas Lighthouse.

County Commissioner Warren Yeager spoke about the Cape San Blas Lighthouse and the fact that the county has offered to take the deed from the city of Port St. Joe, which is looking at a $1 million relocation project.

Yeager said that he felt “confident” that the deed would be turned over to the county and that the city should consider putting the money raised toward fixing water throughout the city instead of using it to move the lighthouse into Port St. Joe.

With heavy road work happening on State 30A throughout the remainder of 2014, Yeager said that relocation wouldn’t even be able to begin until 2015.

Yeager said he supported the cause to move the lighthouse to Salinas Park.

Yeager also told his constituents that he didn’t agree with the mandatory changes made to the 30A exit and that the removal of the egress that heads toward the Franklin County line made the intersection more dangerous.
