Port Clinton News

“The Best of Times, the Worst of Times”

There has been much said on the future economic development of Port Clinton that will impact the future of Port Clinton and the surrounding area. There is a lively debate every Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. at Common Grounds Coffee Shop, initiated by our local newspaper, The Beacon. It is entitled, “Coffee with the Editor.” Concerned citizens voice their opinion and suggestions on a wide variety of subjects, most seem to be concentrated on the revitalization of the downtown and adjacent areas of the community. This is an informal group that is monitored by the Editor, Jasmine Cupp.

Several of these discussions have included local official’s names and organizations that the citizens feel should be accountable for their actions, or lack thereof. Many credible surveys have been conducted to determine what the people really feel about the future of their community. It seems to be apparent that they want to have a vibrant community that was once Port Clinton. The community, as a whole, agrees that doing nothing achieves nothing. 

There are several community business leaders that are working behind the scenes to achieve the results that the community, so deservedly, have voiced their opinions on. These groups will be working with our elected officials to achieve the goals that you have set forth. More will be forthcoming in future announcements on these initiatives.
