At yesterday’s Planning Commission field study meeting at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve parking lot, the Planning Commissioners heard from a gathering of over 20 residents who had serious reservations about the project at its core, noting that on most days the lot is mostly empty, the open space in the area is cherished and utilized as such, and what is really needed is more rangers at busy times to protect the natural resources at the reserve.
