Are the beach goers going to pay a fare for the shuttle or does that come out of the parking fee?? That's the only way I would do it. Who says we need to provide accomodations for day trippers. The Hamptons solution is the smartest and the best...no illegal parking and when our spots are filled move to another beach.
The tigertail bridge accomodation would be good for every one and the bridge cost could be coverered by an increase in the parking fee. As it is there are on most days some empty places in the lots because swales are free. There may be a lot of solutions to the parking problem but one thing is for sure...the undiciplined swale parking has got to stop.
As far as the restaurant parking goes, the accomodation has a direct impact on these local businesses but I have found that if there is no parking many times there are no tables either...we just move along. Part of a business location issue is the number of seats and the number of parking places. Where does it say the city must provide them? Same with the beach.
