Protecting the dunes

To the Editor:

The Block Island Residents Association would like to offer an addendum to Rosemary Connelli’s informative column “Protecting the dunes.”

Since the devastation of Sandy, BIRA has invested over $15,000 in snow fencing to restore the dunes and beach grass to preserve them. Our members have worked shoulder to shoulder with other community volunteers and students to install the snow fencing and plant the beach grass. One of BIRA’s top community priorities is the preservation of the island’s dunes.

Watch your speed

To the Editor:

Spring is here and so is the increase in vehicular traffic.

Children depend on adults to use slower and safer speeds.

A means of doing so is by posting caution signs.

A good selection of caution signs can be found online. Lawn signs and posting signs and free standing items are plentiful.

Thank you for your time.
