It seems to me that it is more focused around baseball,touristy stores, and up scale housingthan anything else.johnsonbeachbum (1/3/2010)It is not my idea. Someone awhile back in the PNJ wrote a viewpoint opinion piece with the idea of an aquarium.
Maybe that is your Dad. Brilliant idea in my opinion.
I truely believe the only reason it is being ignored and/or shot down is because "the right people" wont be making money from such an idea.
How on earth could an aquarium or fish hatchery not fit into a maritime themed park?
One of my friends in town is a lawyer and he brought up the lack of anything fishing related at the "Maritime" park during one of the meetingsand Judy Benson from UWF put a finger over her lips and shushed him (yeah, like you would do to a little kid). It's strange, but this town seems to be against anything fishing related.
