Mayor Clemens, Tear Down This Wall!

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, “Mayor Clemens, tear down this wall”.


This evening there was a City Commission workshop that according to the City Website was to deal with the Noise Ordinance and the Snook Islands project. To my dismay it turned out that the Beach Project, not the Snook Islands was the topic.  I would have attended had I known the beach was going to be discussed. A total of four people made public comment. One person commented that the seawall in front off the Casino should not be torn down and could be painted. It was pointed out that taking the seawall out of the equation would save money along with not installing the fountain .

What a shame not to fully realize the imaginative plan Micheal Singer presented us. The seawall’s main purpose is to support the wide roadway in front of the Casino. Removing the seawall and planting natural erosion resistant vegetation will continue the natural dune to the north, as well as blend more harmoniously with the entire beachfront.

Having a soft seascape will complement the renovated Casino building when viewed from the beach and remove the last bit of harshness we currently endure.

So come on Mayor Clemens, tear down this wall!
