Recent reviews by Planning & Zoning of Ocean City has shown a definite lack of foresight and/or planning.

Think Margaritaville project or planned project at inlet.

Parking should be a major consideration for both proposals.

Think parking garages … Does lease with Winsdsor Resorts/Trimper have renewal options? Is it in perpetuity? Parcel is small.

Margaritaville is large. Parking garage would be no problem.

Parking on street at taxpayer’s expense. No meters exist.

When OC town limits were extended to the Delaware line decades ago, little consideration above 62nd Street given. Curb cuts are too close to Coastal Highway. Think 133rd Street for one.

No more parking waivers. Same “Old Boy Family Network Attorney” usually represents developers or petitioner, ordinances written decades ago ....”parking experts” do reviews during February. Is this a peak time?

Check minutes of previous meetings for confirmation.

We all support growth, but must be controlled with foresight.
