Henderson Beach vendors

DESTIN  --  Henderson Beach is one of the last beaches in Destin where businesses are banned from setting up shop.

But that could be changing..
Recently the Florida State Parks' System started accepting business plans from vendors.
The goal is to enhance services available to visitors.
At a meeting last week, businesses from restaurants to equipment rental services were discussed.
But some who spend time on the beach said the proposed additions wouldn't necessarily be improvements.

"I think to put any ribbons or foo-foo on it or try to jazz it up is not going to do anything to enhance anything except possibly the bottom line of the person who wants to be a vendor."

A state park representative said the state would add no new construction on Henderson Beach -- but that each individual vendor could propose to do so in their own plans.
