In the meantime, here is a Letter to the Editor I wrote about our Council's apparent lack of sense.
I know you are all probably tired of this, but I just find it so frighteningly tragic/comic that I must share another chapter of our ongoing Castlecliff beach saga. What follows is not opinion or conjecture, but verifiable observation.
A month after Council resurfaced one parking area that no one uses, heavy equipment working to remove wind-blown sand has damaged another parking area that people do use. Next, the sand moved by the giant digger on a windy day blew straight back and blocked the entrance to Duncan Pavilion. Now, less than two days later, sand is filling the car park again. Meanwhile, Council promotes us as a “Smart Community.”
