It’s ironic that Lee Hawk, listing places he believes make FMB “beachy” as he put it, includes Lani Kai and Diamond Head. (Letter to the Editor, “Keep It Beachy,” Island Sand Paper July 15, 2016) Those are behemoths compared to what Tom Torgerson proposes. The first impression a visitor gets turning onto Estero Boulevard from the Sky Bridge is not beachy, it’s trashy. Mr. Torgerson deserves a fair hearing and an open mind from the Town Council. And if a land swap can improve the hideous traffic mess we have in season at the foot of the bridge, I say Bravo!
