December 31st is the day that Gibraltar will close on the York property and double the size of Fish Creek Public Beach. It will be exactly four months after the August 31 vote in which residents gave the go-ahead for the $1.4 million purchase. Brian Hackbarth, Gibraltar Board Supervisor says the addition is exciting for many reasons.
There are many hopes for the land, but the main goal is to get a restroom facility in place, currently there are only port-a-potties on site. The hope is that by spring the new property will be fully accessible to the public, although the restrooms will be further down the line.
