Trump Hollywood accused of privatizing section of public beach

For the second time this month a Broward County condominium with Donald Trump’s name plastered across its exterior is ruffling feathers with residents.

Shortly after a lawsuit was filed over sales at a Fort Lauderdale condo that licensed his name, the Sun Sentinel reported that the Trump Hollywood project is being acccused of poaching public beach access.

Trump Hollywood employees have been using chairs and lounge furniture to form a barricade that isolates a section of the public beach, the Sun Sentinel said, and that has riled residents of another nearby waterfront condo called the Wave.

“All we’re asking is be good neighbors and respect that one little area for us,” said Harry Polsky, vice presidnet of Trump Hollywood’s homeowners association. “We’re trying to make our own identity. Our own people are trying to enjoy what they paid $1-, $2- and $3 million for.”

But one nearby resident, upset with the seclusion, insists on sitting on Trump Hollywood’s chairs and stirring controversy.

Hollywood officials say the beach is public and anyone can sit on either side of the barricade — but not on the actual chairs, which are property of the Trump condo. Officials hope the neighbors can reach a peaceful resolution. [Sun Sentinel via Palm Beach Post]
