ve­hi­cles in the park,” Wel­born said. “(It’s) bla­tant dis­re­gard for any­one else. Black Pot Beach Park is be­ing over­run by cars.”

The grassy park area is off-lim­its to mo­torists, ac­cord­ing to Blane, and the county is re­mind­ing the pub­lic that there is a des­ig­nated spot for pub­lic park­ing di­rectly across from the park, along Weke Road.

Park­ing is in de­mand at the pop­u­lar North Shore beach.

Last year, the county’s De­part­ment of Parks and Re­cre- ation un­veiled the pro­posed lay­out for the Black Pot Beach Park Mas­ter Plan.

The pre­ferred al­ter­na­tive plan in­cludes 157 park­ing stalls with 60 over­flow stalls, 18 boat-trailer park­ing stalls, 50-per­son camp­ing, two com­fort sta­tions and 15 pavil­ions. The es­ti­mated cost is around $5 mil­lion.

Wel­born said he’s de­vel­op­ing a plan for a walk­ing path on the North Shore.

“The so­lu­tion isn’t to cre­ate more park­ing, but rather al­ter­na­tive trans­porta­tion modal­ity so park­ing isn’t needed by sin­gle oc­cu­pancy ve­hi­cles,” Wel­born said. “Let’s come up with some dif­fer­ent modes.” many other places,” Wei­d­ner said. “Our num­ber one kind of ma­rine de­bris are the derelict fish­ing nets.”

Vol­un­teers will be meet­ing with the Kauai Surfrider at 9 a.m. at Nukoli’i Beach, be­tween Hanama’ulu and Wailua. It is ac­cessed by driv­ing into the Kauai Beach Re­sort Ho­tel, through the tree tun­nel and to a road on the right that leads to the beach. Signs will be posted.

Tools, gloves, wa­ter and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able. Vol­un­teers are en­cour­aged to wear a hat and closed-toed shoes and bring a wa­ter bot­tle.

Surfrider is ask­ing vol­un­teers to bring pickup trucks to help haul away de­bris.

Help will also be needed for weigh­ing and sort­ing.
