For those of you familiar with the Fish Camp on the north side of Lake Iamonia, you know that there are not many residences on Iamonia Landing Road. Out of forty something residences, one neighbor has decided that he wants to shut down the Fish Camp. His contention is that the music is too loud and a myriad of other complaints with little to no merit. Mr. Chapman built his house in late 2015. The Fish Camp was established in 1951. 

Mr. Chapman has contacted Leon County contending that the land the Fish Camp is located on is zoned rural and therefore no commercial business should be allowed. Mr. Chapman is correct, however, existing business is grandfathered in as long as the operations have not ceased for a time period of 24 months. Operations have never ceased for 24 months at this location and the type of business being conducted has not significantly changed. The Property in question is listed as commercial according to the Leon County Property Appraiser. 

Leon County Board of Adjustment and Appeals will be holding a hearing on December 12th to decide the fate of the Fish Camp. They do take into consideration community input. Many of the neighbors in the area enjoy and frequent the Fish Camp. We ask you to join us in support of this historical building and business. Please sign the petition asking Leon County, Florida to approve the continued Operation of the Fish Camp.
