Councilwoman Cynthia Garfield is advocating for the sustainable tourism effort to be included among city’s key goals for 2019, saying that it would benefit both the city and businesses to have visitors stay longer.
Garfield provided of an example of how to manage crowds along the shore by ensuring a measured flux of tourists.
“Some of the things we are exploring is paid parking along the coast,” she said. “The Coastal Commission doesn’t like paid parking but we are looking at it in an unobtrusive way.”
Trying to figure out what substainable tourism is. We already have all the human waste/agricultural runoff water for them. Next up will be mandatory house sharing, where residents must host visitors. Manage the crowds along the shores means fencing off and keeping humans out of reach of the shore.
Oh – and parking meters along Ocean View – another tax.
