it still makes no sense to me to put all the Park Board offices and equipment and infrastructure ("eggs") in an exposed beachfront structure ("basket") on the far east end of the beaches they are supposed to be responsible for. Yes, a visitor support structure is needed …

Right now, EVERY home is subject to potential flooding and destruction. Apparently that's the best option.

Two scams for the price of one!
