  1. Conn Brown Harbor has so much potential to be a wonderful tourist attraction not to mention beautiful spot for locals to hang out. Think Key West/Rockport.

    Art galleries, locally owned shops, yoga, bistros, bar and grill over looking the water.. seems such a waste of beautiful space as it is now.

  7. I want the pool to be open sooner in the year,and stay open later in the year. As long as the pumps are running there should be acess to atleast tax payers

    It would be revenue for the city and help keep those needing the therapy going.

  10. The Aquatic Center to open earlier in the year,

    I think the pool should have already be open for the morning Exercise. The ability to have access for those with disabilities water offers so many benefits. I have been going to Rockport for at least...

  11. Drawing in new buiness

    I see that Portland is allowing a Denny's to be built. That one establishment will do wonders. Why didn't our Chamber of Commerce do something like that. Sure, the Bakery is good, but we could use...

  14. Bike lanes

    Please consider including bike lanes and sidewalks all around the city. Safety for children and enhanced community value. We live close to aquatic center but cannot bike due to dangerous roads.
