Back on May 16th, I was making a point which is still valid – that organizations, either governmental or non-governmental need to coordinate our efforts for the betterment of the entire community.
I made the following statement:
“For example, the Harbor Commission contracted to dredge out the fish pier. Had they had input from the Maritime Society, they would have, with very little additional cost, dredged the back waterfront directly behind the Custom House. Then tall ships could have docked there, further enhancing the Historic and Maritime Tourism that has brought so much money into our City. Large plans are going on now to bring these ships into the harbor and they will have to be placed far away from the Custom House. The Commission never bothered to approach the Society.
ONE OPPORTUNITY LOST THAT WILL COST US MONEY FOR YEARS TO COME.”
Councilor Cronin brought it to my attention that it was the Waterfront Trust (shame on them) for not bothering to coordinate.
