About 15 years ago, my wife and I fell in love with Delray Beach and purchased a condo nearby, which my family enjoys so much. Unfortunately, the ongoing development projects are destroying what was once a wonderful respite from busy city life. You can no longer easily drive down Atlantic Avenue at night, particularly if in search of a parking place. On a recent evening a restaurant valet waved me on, unable to park my car.
The city is becoming way overcrowded and yet the building projects continue to mushroom in quantity and size.
What is the City Commission thinking? Are they beholden to the developers? What we once loved about Delray Beach is being destroyed.
I beg the City Commission to wake up. Enough is enough!
