No Parking Notice Posted — and Enforced



CORAL BAY — The Moravian Church Council of the Virgin Islands wasted no time in posting a notice on July 22 that they were re-taking control of the V.I. Government-owned property between Skinny Legs and the Coral Bay Fire Station and the shuttered Guy H. Benjamin School in Coral Bay and immediately towing abandoned vehicles parked on the property which is leased to the Moravian Church and slated for development.  

A few vehicles were towed before residents arrived to remove others, including boat trailers stored on the open land, Moravian Church Council property manager Samuel Rymer told St. John Tradewinds.

The Moravian Church Council officials and the developers also plan to meet further with the owners of Skinny Legs restaurant concerning parking for the iconic burger joint and tourist attraction, according to Rymer.  

“We can work something out,” the Moravian Church Council official said of the parking area that is V.I. public property that is leased to the council and sublet to the developers proposing a marina and condominium development on public lot and the neighboring Moravian Church Council property along the shoreline.
