Leave no trace

Dear Editor,

Thanks to Nancy Thomson for voicing her opinion in regards to protecting our beaches!  Her comments in the editorial represent my exact sentiments.  The Cape area is a true treasure and we need to take the initiative to preserve it.  We have the responsibility to protect the natural habitat of the turtles, birds, etc. and stop the irreversible negative effects on the beaches/dunes.   

People will still vacation at the Cape if not allowed to drive on the beach or the "Leave No Trace" ordinance is put in place!  Visitors come here to enjoy the beauty, but it needs to be enjoyed in a responsible manner.  I am asking our commissioners to consider the need to save this treasure for future generations. Please be open to limiting vehicle traffic on the beaches and by helping us keep the beaches clean!
