Mayor Stacy Armato has vigorously touted the benefits of the parade of special events sponsored by for-profit organizations that now dominate the landscape of our plaza area beaches and downtown area 6-8 months a year.
Why don’t we just cut to the chase and have a vote to extend the plaza area central business district all the way to the High-Tide Line?
Commercial banners, for profit tent stores, and for-profit services are now common place on our beaches and in our public parks.
I know, it draws in lots of tourist dollars and usage fees fund our burgeoning city payrolls.
The formula is grow the business district, grow the city payroll and extract wealth and quality of life from vulnerable neighborhoods to pay for it.
My idea - Keep Hermosa Hermosa!
