Destin can't stop Narconon Gulf Coast from opening a "community residential home" for recovering addicts as long as the home abides by Florida law, the city's land-use attorney says.

"The state has made a decision to encourage the treatment of individuals - in a community homelike setting." Land Use Attorney Scott Shirley told the City Council Monday, and that pre-empts the city's zoning and even homeowner association covenants.

It wasn't what the council wanted to hear.

"If I put myself in the place of a homeowner," Councilor Jim Wood said, "it would bug me a lot that neither my local elected officials or homeowners association could do anything about this."
