Beach Street Blocked Off - 01/05/09 03:00 PM
The San Pedro Town Council once again blocked off the street that gives access to the beach just south of town, but the other access streets are still allowing large vehicles to enter the beach area. At one point only golf carts were allowed to use the beach street, but the rules were not enforced. We urge the Town Council to enforce the law so that we do not lose the beauty of our sandy beaches. Already the heavy traffic has deteriorated the conditions of the beach area. If we do not protect them we will lose its charm.
One beach area that is being affected with much traffic is the one immediately in front of town stretching from Choloís Sports Bar and Holiday Hotel. Traffic is accessing this beach through the empty lot adjacent to the old Atlantic Bank building. Taxi drivers rush to the beach to take customers and cargo to the Island Ferry and visitors run into the beach area not knowing that the beach is off limits.
We hope that the Town Council will block all these entries to the beach because the island cannot afford to lose its precious beaches. Look at all the trouble we are having with out streets that eventually had to be paved!
