Waterworks Park

How soon we forget. We now see a replay of 2007 on the Waterworks Park issue. The people who oppose any development and insist that the citizens should decide were already accommodated 6 years ago.  The issue of rezoning the park to permit the development was on the ballot November 6, 2007.  Those in favor had their say and, among many others, were supported by the opinion of three former mayors: myself, John Fritz, and Jeanne Huskey. The opposition was organized by the same C.O.R.D. group that continues to oppose it as if they have forgotten that the people spoke to them that November and supported the change to allow the development.

Waterworks Park

Such an amazing weekend with the Tall Ships coming to our area, the downtown having a festival and the PCYC's Green Island Race.  I give gratitude for the organizers, volunteers and those who supported these events.

It was nice seeing out of town visitors walking through Waterworks Park.  I saw a couple looking at the Erie Dearie memorial sign, which is the former transom of Erie Dearie Dan's boat, who was the developer of the Erie Dearie fishing lure. He was one of the charter boat captains who was responsible for bringing many people to our area for fishing in the 1970's.  I have heard many snide remarks at some of the local meetings and from residents about the Erie Dearie sign and what value that it had at the Waterworks Park. Maybe this information will clarify it for you.
