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.
