One of the variances given to the new hotel was regarding parking . This afternoon a reception for South Bay Politicians will be held at the new facility and signs have been posted along Seacoast Drive and in front of several business's that have survived the construction. The signs say that all of those street parking spaces are reserved for political officials who will attend the event. An RSVP list indicates that almost 400 people will be in attendance and the New Pier South Hotel is still not ready to open. There is supposed to be a ribon cutting . If you are a local that wants to park by the beach...this is only the first of many events that you will be "put-out" over because the council did not make the owner provide adequate parking required by code. Large parties at the hotel in the future will put even further demands on parking that used to be free and public.
