The heading and content of The News Herald’s Dec. 12 article, “Picturesque setting...strong lure to region, ” is particularly ironic in light of the recent controversies on the future of Waterfront Park.

Tourism in 2013 generated nearly $2 billion for Ottawa and Erie counties, with the scenic lakefront a major part of what draws those tourists and dollars. Yet unlike more progressive communities elsewhere around the Great Lakes, some in Port Clinton still propose to wall off a portion of Port Clinton’s lake and river front with new construction.

Locally within the past year, Vermilion and Marblehead have both contributed substantial sums toward preserving and enhancing their open waterfronts. Those communities recognize that their aesthetic, financial, and quality-of-life benefits far outlast any limited gains from the types of development that have already marred coastlines in so much of the U.S.

Even a large city like Chicago, which had the foresight to preserve the central portion of its lakefront from development a century ago, now considers its open lakefront a crown jewel among its attractions to residents and tourists.

Port Clinton’s main street includes numerous examples of historically and architecturally significant buildings, many of which still languish in varying states of deterioration and disrepair. Focus redevelopment efforts on the considerable assets Port Clinton already has — quit talking about demolishing a cornerstone building on Madison Street, focus more efforts on unutilized treasures such as the old city hall, preserve the city’s unique park and waterfront — and Port Clinton will have a much brighter future.
