Letter: Historic integrity on Broad Beach Road

Letter to the Editor

I’m writing to you regarding my frustrating communication with the city in regards to widening Broad Beach Road with brick. When I talked to them, they said they have the money and they may or may not do it. The reason for doing it is for run-off and filtration.

As a resident of Broad Beach Road, I’m disappointed because I believe it will create a wider look to the road as well remove the rustic look of the park-like space north of Broad Beach Road. As you may know, Broad Beach Road was the original PCH and I believe has historic value and should be preserved as is and not have more cement which will take away a lot of the natural look of the park-like space. “Pavers” is just a fancy word for more cement.
