Several years ago Port Clinton council listened to Perry Street constituents instead of all its constituents and decided to reject any proposal to work with the Jet Express to improve Waterworks Park. Now look! We have no revenue from the municipal parking, no one docking in the transient docks the city installed, no Rocket business for which the city invested $1,000 in a sign, a Coastal Marine project that has not secured any revenue, a falling apart "historical building" that has been there for more than two years without any restoration, and the list goes on and on!
We have a proposal for a marina, waterpark, convention center, hotel, and walkway. What is wrong with trying this?
We need to do something to bring revenue and jobs into our city. These projects will not block the view of the lake. They will get us on the right track to promote our city.
Downtown is already becoming a ghost town, and our streets are becoming one big pot hole after another.
I am tired of one councilman knocking down this project in favor of condos. This councilman should have abstained because he has an investment in real estate.
At least let the Puller Group attempt to revive our city!
It's time to push for legalized gambling in Ohio. Why should our dollars be going to Canada, Michigan, Indiana, Nevada, New Jersey, and Niagara Falls to name a few? If the Puller Group's proposal did fail ( which I don't think it will) what a great spot for a marina, casino, and restaurants.
I know some will say this will bring crime, addictions, etc., but all of the above locations manage. Detroit has three casinos.
Let us drop allof these political shenanigans and get down to business and let council do the job we voted them in to do and let the Puller development begin!
