At June’s PDPOA Board Meeting, the Yardarm Gate proposal, which proposed repurposing of the existing fire emergency access at Yard Arm into a permanent ingress/egress for vehicular traffic, was presented and voted on by the board. The goals of this alternate ingress/egress was to alleviate the congestion in and around the PD Circle and along Mooring Buoy to the three way stop; provide a convenient alternative entrance/exit; and provide access to Mariners when the North Gate bridge is being replaced. After careful review of the comprehensive proposal, property owner comments and a healthy debate, the board voted not to approve the proposal as presented. A majority of the board could not support the capital investment and impact to the neighboring community over the perceived benefits this gate may have.
