Calling On The Midnight Marauder

Looking for the midnight Marauder….that mysterious guy who put up the signs… on the church and in other parts of town in the dark of night …

Please take some ribbon or string…and a tape measure….and measure in from where a curb would be on the street 12 feet…..then pull that string or ribbon accross the property…and leave it there!

Let the residents see….just how much of the property…(yes I know it is the right of way)…..would be gone… how much of their plantings, driveways…. would be gone….where the sidewalk would be…how close to their front doors or windows!

The Master Plan “walkways to the Portals” could be a walkway in the future from Tradewinds…with all of the Silver Shore neighborhoods north and south of Commercial impacted…. Bel Air….Terra Mar….Surf and Yacht Estates…including Codrington…Imperial Lane…. all streets in town!

Now, why not see if there is an alternative?

Less impact to the neighborhood, sidewalks closer to the road…..a win-win scenario…is this not why we voted the way we did…to guarantee the quality of life we moved here for?

Start with Washingtonia… come and speak on March 11, 2008….for an alternative…one side as on Seagrape Drive and numerous other streets in town….with a curb…some drainage and closer to the road.

One commissioner told me he instructed that the impact on Washingtonia be with the least impact…the plans at present show otherwise.

Stop the insinuations that Washingtonia does not want sidewalks…we do…just sidewalks installed that will not put some neighbors out of business!
