If you were planning to head down to Anna Maria Island during the upcoming holiday weekend (or any time) you better get there early before the parking spots are all taken, and bring your mask.
The cities of Anna Maria and Holmes Beach are now requiring masks when social distancing can’t be achieved. That’s the easy part. The tough part may be finding a parking spot. When COVID-19 shut down the beaches, public parking was closed. Now that the beaches have been reopened, not all of the Holmes Beach parking spots were opened back up. This cut down over 1,000 parking spots near residential neighborhoods.
According to officials with Holmes Beach, this cut down on problems the residents had with tourists around their homes. Protesters, however, want their parking to be returned and question the motives of the city, which claims they just want to keep a balance between people visiting the beaches for the day and residents of the town.
