LETTER: More questions than answers with proposed pier

Published: Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 04:51 PM.

Our infrastructure, roads, bike path; evacuation route suffer from neglect from lack of funding;

Parking at the beach accesses is suffering from too many vehicles;

We have no public transportation system; cancer patients who need to get to hospitals or doctor’s offices must depend upon “the kindness of strangers” because there is no affordable public transportation; those tourists who would happily park their vehicle and take public transportation, do not have that choice;

The senior center, while doing remarkable work, is small, crowded, and underfunded, so that our citizens in their later years are basically forgotten; we have families with children who do not have enough food or any health care; we have neighborhoods that flood on a regular basis because of poor planning and design; and

We have no long range plan for development or management of our county;

And yet, we are going to build a fishing pier in one of the most pristine state parks in the entire country.
