There Are Too Many Naked People in Loxahatchee Groves

SunSport Gardens has a problem -- there are too many naked people running around their community.


The problem isn't the fact that residents are nude -- it is in fact a nudist camp -- but that a Palm Beach County resolution says they have too many of them.

Apparently this resolution, passed in 1994, dictates land-use and zoning laws that allow only 48 trailers at the site. There are currently 133. 

The Sun-Sentinel reported all of this yesterday to our amusement to then quote Mayor Dave Browning as saying he's "not inclined to shake things up at the camp site." Good, because shaking naked adults would be awkward.

Our favorite part, though, is how the Community Council plans to deal with the problem. It's going to hold an issues meeting on December 7. We just really hope some of the nudists attend.
