    This newscast inaccurately states that the petition presented by the property owners notes surfer behavior. In actuality, the ‘electronic’ petition in question was emailed out with an accompanying letter that noted the following concerns as reasons to table the proposed change in parking dates:

    Congestion. Pedestrian safety, Emergency vehicle access, Traffic safety

    The petition or accompanying email does NOT mention Surfer Behavior as a concern AT ALL. However, when the petition was presented to the town council at Jan 20th town meeting Surfer Behavior was the only concern discussed. This is a very important distinction because it means that the ‘60′ signees were actually misrepresented in the Town’s chamber. Further, where are the details to support the actual concerns of the petition noted above? The petition was by and large used to manipulate the Council into believing surfer behavior is a much bigger concern than it really is. As a result just a few property owners under-handedly impacted a policy related decision and slandered this long standing environmentally conscious, reputable surf community.
