Porn off Belle Isle — Are you surprised?

The Miami Herald’s David Smiley reports one more indignity for Monument Island, the island park across the Biscayne Bay to our south.

A group called Reality Kings made a porn video there, and posted it in the middle of the debate over how to regulate out of control activities on the island.

It’s worth posting what assistant city manager Hilda Fernandez has recommended be done to get activities under control:

1. Limit the number of boats and people on a daily basis, at least during
spring, summer and fall;
2. Require day passes – open to all to be purchased at the Miami Beach
marina and displayed on the boats. These passes will have to be different
colors or patterns to avoid abuse;
3. Establish a uniform charge for the daily pass to any and all users based on
the size of the boat and the number of people on board;
4. The cost of the daily passes should include all direct and indirect costs
related to the island, including but not limited to, any fee charged by the
Marina for issuing the passes, cost of the passes, maintenance and
garbage removal from the island, enhanced Marine Patrol and code
enforcement on and around the island, including enforcing the speed
limit, cost of boat inspections for no discharge, etc. This will reduce the
cost burden to the City and impose costs on the users;
5. Nature/Historical tours should be allowed on a limited basis, i.e., one (1)
in the morning and one (1) in the afternoon for a specified limited time,
one (1) hour, to have guided tours to see the monument. The number of
visitors in each tour must be limited, i.e., twenty (20) people each tour
maximum and limited in activities; and
6. The island must not be the location of any parties or special events.
