Some West End homeowners worry city plans to improve public beach access with such things as more parking and dune walkovers are not realistic and will burden their neighborhoods.

Time for the city to get this done correctly once and for all. My suggestion would be for the City to get the sites laid out as needed, even if it is necessary to condemn some properties. Then have the capital expenses and future maintenance of all aspects of the "access areas" done by the Parks Board as they do on the Seawall. Pay for all of this from Parking and Hotel/Motel taxes. Don't rely on the neighborhoods to maintain or improve the access points - if it is a City obligation to provide them.

Perhaps no one remembers but after Ike FEMA offered to pay for walkovers at places like pirates beach and Indian beach but the HOA’s declined cause they simply didn’t want them
