Subject: Parking and Congestion
Comments: The Holmes Beach Congestion Committee has it correct. We have to eliminate right of way parking on residential streets. Residents can have a sticker allowing parking when guests visit. The residents on beach access streets need relief. As far as the Little League goes, we do not need more congestion coming onto the island.

Subject: car parking charges
Comments: We have been to the island so many times from the uk and are very surprised that parking charges haven't been brought into force, for as long as i can remember paying for parking in the uk along the sea front or in a car park has always been a way of life, the usual cost is about -6 for a days parking, the local council collects this money and sometimes, not always, use the cash collected to keep the upkeep of the facilities, you have such a charming and lovely place and this feels the obvious way forward,
You will always get small minority of people complaining or trying to dodge the charges but it seems that the island needs to manage this problem and make money for the upkeep of your lovely island.
