Waterworks Park should remain a park because public land should be kept for public use.
Ottawa County has 94 miles of Lake Erie shoreline and 14.5 miles, or about 15 percent, is public access. Port Clinton has one mile of this access. We already have hotels/motels, bars, condos and restaurants up and down the shoreline.
Why do we need more?
Port Clinton should take advantage of its uniqueness and build the most beautiful park imaginable. Port Clinton can be a destination with a place to experience the lake, shop, eat and spend the night. Best of all, our residents can enjoy it too. Once we destroy our lake access, it is gone forever.
