MAILBOXES - PLACEMENT AND TYPE OF MAILBOXES FOR LEWES BEACH
One of the recommendations from the Beach Parking Commission is to look at mailbox placement. Mailboxes can sometimes be blocked by illegally parked cars and can make it hard for citizens to receive their mail. There are two (2) options for moving forward. One option is Cluster mailboxes. The cluster mailboxes would be located at the end of a street. The second option is to leave the existing mailboxes where they are.
Click on the title to view photos of both options. Please select the option you prefer.
Parking space identification & delineation of parking spaces
Since parking is in such high demand, the allocation and delineation of parking spaces are important to determine the number of cars we should facilitate. Below, are two (2) categories for consideration.
Parking Space Identification
The City hired GMB to identify all potential parking spaces within the beach area. Please tell us what you like or dislike about the allocation of the potential parking spaces.
The following are draft identifications of parking spaces within the beach area. Click on the Road Section to view the identified spaces. You can zoom in to get a closer look. Please use the "+" and "-" to zoom in and out.
