Opinion: In Incline Village, we don’t want visitors at our precious beaches
In the April 28th issue of the Bonanza, Jane Bekowich wrote an opinion column that outlined the problem Incline residents have had to endure over the past years with the excessive visitor use of our beaches, and the lack of attention this issue has garnered with our Board of Trustees.
I believe the IVGID trustees and those running for trustee owe the residents of Incline a response to this issue, which should be published in the Bonanza.
Not only does Mrs. Bekowich’s article — “We must urge IVGID board to fix our beach problems” — outline the problem, but she offers several solutions.
The excessive visitor use of Incline’s beaches has led to parking on Lakeshore, which is not only dangerous to pedestrians, but inconvenient and dangerous to Lakeshore residents exiting their driveways.
The beach issue is not new and has been addressed several times at monthly meetings, with overwhelming support of curtailing outside use of our beaches.
Trustees who ignore this problem should be held accountable. Visitors wishing to use Incline beaches should be directed to Sand Harbor State Park.
