Is the City Buying Scenic Highway Residents a View of Escambia Bay?

The PNJ has an interesting piece in today's paper that talks about the "past, present and future" of Scenic Highway.

One part of the story grabbed my attention. It says: "Jean Wallace, vice president of the Scenic Highway Foundation, would like to see public purchase or private donations over the next 10 years to expand and enhance the highway’s scenic nature."

The story adds: "A crucial victory, Wallace said, was the City of Pensacola’s purchase of the former Baars property south of Bay Bluffs Park about eight years ago. The undeveloped stretch of land just south of Bay Bluffs Park gives drivers and area unobstructed view across Escambia Bay."

What? Why is the city buying Ms. Wallace a view of the bay? I'm sure she's a lovely woman, but I don't think we should use taxpayer money to improve her property value.

What do you think?
