why is Manteo waterfront area always so dirty? Sidewalks, parking, and streets are always a mess. NO EXCUSE!

Im sorry for your experience. I live in Manteo and the water front is generally beautiful. I think you may have visited right after Hurricane Earl. We have had a lot of debris down and are awaiting clean up from the storm.

Thankfully the whole town had power restored shortly. The bike path and public areas are going to talke some time to clean up.

go to the public parking lot under the Waterfront condos. Hasn't been cleaned in months! There must be things growing in there. Landscape timbers broken or out of place along sidewalk for weeks. Truely, does anyone ever clean down there.
Tourist and business owners alike have made comment about the lack of cleaning. This is one of Roanoke Islands biggest attractions. It deserves better!

Waterfront condos is not owned by Manteo. Heard the owner is in deep money woes and the homeowner's assoc. has no money. Owner is not making repairs or taking care of the place. Someone that lives there is having a hard time getting her decking repaired.

If I remember correctly, the waterfront owner is responsible for keeping parking decks on both sides cleaned. The landscape timbers definitely belong to the owner too.

so you defend the mess in downtown Manteo? Fine with me. I don't live there. Just thought you deserved better. By the way...everything I decribed as bad is the towns responsibility. You didn't even address the parking lot issue which is public and not part of the condo association. Go ask the town what it is they are responsible for and maybe it will give them a wakeup call. IT'S YOUR TOWN AFTERALL.

to clearify...the parking area on the northside under the condos is public and maintained by the town. The southside belongs to the condo association and is gated for private use.

I actually think they do a very good job of keeping it clean...we have a sailboat mooored out there & I have never expierenced what you have described & I spend right much time down there. Now right after our storms, I have seen fallen or blown debris, but as soon as the Town could get to it, it was cleaned & back to it's pristine state. But everyone has the right to their own opinion, I just don't agree with yours.
