Why do they need to do a nourishment? To save the structures built on a barrier island. It is the nature of these islands to move and change over time. These islands will not go away any time too soon, what is in danger of disappearing is the homes built there and that is what the town wantes us to pay to save. These property owers built and bought with little to no knowledge of what happens in these environments and now are complaining that mother nature is whipping their tails. The beach is not going anywhere, it will always be there. I live in central Wilmington and have not paid to park at WB in years and I go there with my kids in the summer almost everyday. We ride bikes or go before the meters are in effect or after. If all of us locals decided to do this the town would lose a vast majority of thier meter money. It is not the out of town tourists that pay to park, they are staying in rental homes and hotels that have free parking for guests, it is the local day trippers that foot the bill. Town residents get a break on the fee for the yearly pass, however county residents do not. Am I mistaken but dosen't some of my county tax dollars go to them for services. If so then shouldn't I be entitled to the same discount as town residents for the parking pass?
