Some homeowners say a beach restoration plan that is supposed to protect their property from erosion is nothing more than a ploy to grab private shoreline for public use.
Two groups are mounting administrative appeals against beach nourishment plans by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Destin and neighboring Walton County.
A group calling itself Save Our Beaches and its Walton counterpart, Stop the Beach Renourishment, have requested hearings. Those hearings haven't been scheduled yet.
The project is on hold until things are sorted out.
