Over more than 30 years as a reporter and editor at the Pensacola News Journal, I watched certain community issues that never seemed to go away. Everyone agreed on the problem, but no one could agree on a solution.
So we debated the problem, over and over.
One such evergreen issue is traffic on Pensacola Beach. Actually, it’s two problems. Traffic, and parking.
I see no real solution for parking. This area is growing, and tourism is growing. What isn’t growing is the size of the beach. There simply isn’t room.
