Thank you Mary Kate. You write very well. Keep the reports of the Ocean Ave. bridge progress coming. This site is practically the only good and consistent source for local Lantana information on the internet.

t/y Mark Kate...I live on A1A and so am naturally - like everybody else - concerned about sand erosion, beach replenishment- restoration, dunes, reefs and evacuation.  Plus, downtown Delray is gorgeous, but shouldn't be overly commercialized, at least in my view.  best & thanx...PJS
