Trailer at Greenwich Point raises safety concerns

|

A trailer used by lifeguards at Greenwich Point is raising concerns about safety — and aesthetics — from beachgoers.

Bill Bambrick, a member of the Representative Town Meeting and a frequent Greenwich Point beach walker, said the trailer, which lacks a foundation, could blow away in strong winds. A big gust, he fears, could cause the trailer to land on people soaking up rays on the beach.

“It’s hideous to look at, but the problem is worse than that,” said Bambrick. “It can fly over.”

Bambrick said his chief concern is the safety of beachgoers who lay out near the trailer and children who crawl under it.

“Port Jeff had a 46 mph wind gust last Saturday,” he said. “These trailers aren’t built to sustain that.”

Bill Bambrick, a District 12 RTM member, solicits signatures from his fellow RTM members for a petition to remove the trailer at Greenwich Point.
