No concrete on Riverwalk

A recent letter to the editor said exactly what the slated Riverwalk should be. It remains to be seen if such a welcome plan will ever be realized in Port Orange.

Our present City Council and local government are completely enveloped in a somewhat arrogant belief that Port Orange of long ago can be resurrected. Their heads were still in the sand, as Port Orange moved westward and in the near future will be centered at the Pavilion.

Wake up, folks! Drop the vision that we have been group-thinking since 1998 with rose-colored glasses. It has faded into the sunset forever. The searched-for green environment we so sincerely desire is at our footsteps along the beautiful Halifax River.

Let's forget about increasing the tax base for whatever ill-conceived reason and become proud of a riverfront not disparaged by a grouping of concrete.
