    The beach is for use by the people and not the subject matter of a committee, Council, Etc the only public input that is needed is the beach Remains the property of the citizens.

  2. John Heck says:

    It is highly irresponsible & of sophomoric thinking to claim the beach is plainly public domain ! We pay higher taxes for beachside/beachside property and to not subsidize use of it by outsiders is inane and lack logical ! Many beach communities in Florida and elsewhere charge a nominal fee to offset the maintenance, policing, and ancillary costs associated with parking areas, trash removal, crossover refurbishment and patrolling of its environs ! We must take steps to secure beach safety…curtailing beach driving, dog attacks, prohibited activities and littering ! The time has arrived to wake up and get these issues under control instead of laissez faire & immature thinking processes ! There is too much growth for us locals to be comfortable with outsiders moving in and being apathetic to the preservation and quality of life here that is diminishing because of these festering conditions ! The time to wake up is Now #
