My family owns a beach front place at the Shores since the early 1970's. I have never been more annoyed at the constant heavy equipment use on the beach in front of the Shores as I was last week. 6 days a week of heavy equipment and the constant 8 hours of beeping noise that the big tractors make when backing up. One day the driver drove backwards from one end of the beach to the other at least a dozen times with a constant backup noise for half an hour!
The most annoying part is that they are moving seaweed from one end of the beach to the other and taking literally all day to bury it and level the sand with unnecessary precision. This isn't winter where we would be concerned about storms and sand erosion. I was amazed at the hours spent leveling, smoothing and going over and over the same patch of beach. It's a beach for god's sake, bury the seaweed and be done with it. This isn't a golf course. Beaches are not naturally flat and smooth.
It was disconcerning to experience the constant daily noise pollution let alone think about the cost of salaries, gas and maintenance that this type of activity utilizes? I can only think Coronado has a massive budget for seaweed removal and beach leveling. In the past the city has buried the seaweed and then left the beach by mid-day. I cannot recall Coronado ever spending time/money on leveling the beach.
Perhaps the city council should review it's policies on this activity and review the necessity of a budget to level sand in the middle of summer.
Just a thought. Anyone else annoyed?
