Re: “More design concepts for the Port of Rochester

"The people of Rochester and all surrounding suburbs don't realize how BIG a chunk of Charlotte beach property the City wants to sell. Once it is gone, it is GONE. The City wants to sell part of this uncut, unpolished gem, for development of privately owned condominiums and townhouses. Privately owned! Once they're built, you won't be stepping on that property again, unless you live in their apartments or condominiums. Another part of the beach parcel will be for a 10 story highrise hotel. Pfft! there goes the view...unless you'd care to rent a room.
Many people say they only come down to the beach a couple times a year....maybe because they have their own backyard pools. But let the City go ahead with its plans and the beachfront landscape with its public picnic grounds, concerts, boardwalk, and parking, will be forever changed. This wide open space with ample parking lots is going to shrink. And a few years from now, many Rochesterians visiting the lake, will say "what happened???!"
Most of us who are complaining about the development do so with one thought in mind: KEEP IT PUBLIC!!! We are not against development of our natural gem - we just don't want to see it fall into private hands and turned into private lands. Use the land for stores, boutiques, restaurants, water parks. Whatever goes in at this space should be and must be for the PUBLIC. This land belongs to ALL OF US. Let's not give it away to only those few who can afford to live there.
