Non-Profit Asks Cameron County To Stop Closing Beach For SpaceX


A non-profit organization is asking Cameron County to deny SpaceX permission to close access to Boca Chica Beach for the rest of the year.

The group Save RGV wrote a letter to Cameron County’s judge and district attorney last week asking them to stop any future closures of the beach and Highway 4 near the company’s launch facility.

The group cited an agreement between the FAA and the county that limits such closures to 300 hours a year, and pointed out that SpaceX has already exceeded that number this year.

County officials tell the Brownsville Herald that the letter raises several legitimate concerns, and that they are working to find answers for the group.
