The fact is that we need more cruise ship berthing and after an exhaustive study the decision that was reached is the right one. Remember the petition that gathered more than two thousand signatures in support of the northern option - that amount is almost unheard of in this small town.
Already plans of a historic overlay are in full swing so development in the area north of the tunnel known as Newtown will be rehabilitated with a historic flair. There will be no gaudy buildings or color schemes allowed in that area, the same as Carmel, California and many other historic communities around the country.
City float will be vastly improved and expanded and the sidewalks will be widened, Hopkins Alley will become the next Creek Street as it is one of the last wooden streets in town and the tourists that make it there just love it.
Not all, but some folks just want to hog all the business to themselves. This is the best option and people who say negative things about it just haven't seen the plans that I have.
I want to urge all the two thousand four hundred people that signed the northern option petition to go out and vote YES!!
Everyone I talk to say they are voting yes. All the negatives that I have heard have no merit. I hope there is another public forum soon.
Vote YES. Good day.
