[School crowding remedy: Home developer offers to build addition to Solley Elementary, Feb. 19, 2006] This area only has a two-lane road and is served by two volunteer fire companies, Orchard Beach and Riviera Beach. Can you also imagine the strain on the police, water and road systems? Imagine, also, at least 3,600 additional vehicles crowded onto a peninsula.
