Parking meters, boulders — things have gone too far
What is happening to our island? Installed parking meters a Waimea Canyon lookout? Then someone rants and raves about Salt Pond area? This person is truly going off the deep end. I guess it’s true, “The squeaky wheel truly gets the grease.”
But to place boulders on the road — intentions to block off areas where local families love to spend their time with their local families — it’s very wrong! There are very few places on Kauai that locals can enjoy without a lot of tourists. This is a very special place for a lot us.
Why didn’t we have a community meeting? So that we could understand and listen to both sides. This is wrong!
The person has thanked the mayor on their Facebook for placing the boulders. I’m hoping the mayor has better judgment. We really need to coexist. It really seems like a lot of wasted energy and wasted island’s money (county workers and equipment) that could be used for more important things.
