Good morning Sea Trail! I hope you are all staying safe. These are very trying times and I know it’s very difficult to do things we are not accustomed to, like not getting any closer then six feet from others. But we need to stay safe along with ensuring that all of our residents of Sea Trail are also safe.
The Master Association has been notified by the Town of Sunset Beach that some residents of Sea Trail are still ignoring the limitation of one hour parking at our beach lot and the closure of certain beach access. They are also concerned that normal ordinances such as restrictions relating to dogs are being ignored. STMA is required to enforce not only our rules but those of the Town. In addition, violations of emergency orders from Sunset Beach may result in issuance of citations by the Town for which legal penalties may result.
Sunset Beach and STMA both recognize the opportunity the beach provides for relief from home confinement necessitated by COVID 19. However, continued selfish disregard of the emergency orders from the Town will result in the total closure of our beach parking lot and the closure of ALL access to the beach, denying access it to everyone and possibly an addition to personal legal jeopardy.
Please be mindful of both our STMA rules and the Town emergency orders. Exercise common sense and concern for others in these unusual times. Let’s remember that we are all in this together and our actions affect everyone.
This WILL end. Until then stay safe and do the right things!
Jack Phillabaum, STMA President
