Press Release – San Pedro Town Council – November 11, 2011 - The general public in particular sports enthusiasts are reminded to respect all sporting premises under the management of the San Pedro Town Council. The Council fully supports and applauds sporting activities but as of lately three incidents done by sports players has cause much concern. The public is advised that if anyone needs to alter or do any type of modifications to these areas that permission is needed from the Council.
Lately, the stage was moved (without authorization) from The Old Football Field, lights were removed from the Ambergris Stadium, and the basketball back-boards were removed from the Boca del Rio court. Again, we remind everyone that this is an offense and we request that everyone respects these areas.
The cooperation of everyone is appreciated.

This notice is very confusing when it says in bold print "accessible only - pedestrains and golf carts", then followed by "Only pedestrians will be allowed to cross the bridge during this period". Also, this couldn't come at a more inopportune time with that week being the first real push of high season and the Thanksgiving visitors. Maybe work on only one side of the road next week and leave the other side open for cart traffic!!!!! Please consider this for the sake of the business people.....north of the bridge businesses, restaurants, clubs, cart rentals, bike rentals. then we will be slow for the following week to finish the other half of the road. Yes, there is always the water taxi, but not all resort locations have available docks for transportation. PLEASE CONSIDER DELAYING FOR A WEEK!
