Dear Mr. Lugo,

On behalf of the Initiative to Protect Jekyll Island State Park (IPJI), I want to thank you for your recent decision to put an end to the Westin’s motorized delivery of beach services. Your concern for preserving the tranquility for which Jekyll’s beach is renowned is much appreciated and reflects well on the Westin’s management and ownership.

The numerous and extensive responses IPJI has received to its announcement of the Westin’s decision to hand-deliver its beach services in the future attests to the importance of the beach driving issue for Jekyll visitors and residents alike. As you can see from the attached comments from IPJI’s Facebook pages, the Westin has their thanks for adopting a method of providing beach services that is consistent with Jekyll’s character and ambiance.
