Letter to the Editor: You will get what you seed


Letters-to-the-EditorDear Editor;
Most of the island and tourist related problems have already been addressed before, by others and online.
As repeat vacation guests we’ll have to fully agree and also submit our warnings about the downfall of the island:
* San Pedro has become unfriendly, unsafe, too noisy, dangerous and hectic for tourists.
* Large construction trucks, pick-up trucks and other noisy vehicles like Polaris take away from any tranquility and serenity tourists seek during vacation. Traffic in general is out of control.
* Beautification, character/style requirements for buildings, height limitations and cleanliness is clearly not of anybody’s mind. There are even buildings in town who board their windows to accommodate advertising signs. How disgusting is that!
You have clearly missed the choice to present town and island in a professional and tourist friendly style.
“You will get what you seed” and the loss will be felt in everyone’s pocket.
/s/ Samara & Micah, New York
