Park Pointers Still Frustrated with Public Access Plan

Residents of Park Point are expressing frustration again over city plans for public access to the beach through avenues near their homes.

About 40 residents attended a committee meeting on Tuesday to discuss amendments to the city plan for 16 future access points.

Many said they worry about how the city expects to maintain the new public access points. One resident said the city can't keep up with the ones they already have.

“Our argument would be that it's unreasonable to overly burden homeowners with picking up the tab in terms of cleaning and maintenance and parking and people walking through our yards when the spots that are designated as public spots are not maintained,” the resident said.

City officials said the avenues won't be opened until easements and improvements could be made by the Parks and Recreation Department. They also said the current access points would need improvements before any budget is made for the secondary access points.
