Dear South Padre Island Windsurfing/Kiting members and anyone concerned about future access to Laguna Madre Bay. A public hearing was held recently revealing more detailed information regarding the 2nd access bridge to South Padre Island. The recommended placement by the planners routes the bridge from Holly Beach - on the mainland - to between beach access points 5 and 6 on the Island. Access 5 is near where we enter the north flats!
While the new bridge is endorsed by most as a necessity, the favored route is extremely problematic for bay wind sports using the Convention Center, North Flats and "Outlaw Beach" flats. The bridge would simply be in the path of our sailing activity. It is vitally important that we all voice our concern to the Project Manager for many reasons other than, but also including recreation. We must implore the planners to locate the bridge as far north as feasible where it lands on South Padre Island. Please mention if you are a property owner or plan to be. Additionally, mention how often you travel to SPI and how important Laguna Madre Bay access is to your travel.
Thank you, Leo DeVigil, firstname.lastname@example.org
