As 2013 begins, Westport sits on the cusp of exciting changes.
Downtown development is picking up steam. The west bank of the river may soon look very different. Saugatuck 2.0 is moving ahead (have you seen flattened-out Ketchum Street lately?). The Y at Mahackeno is a done deal, much teeth-gnashing to the contrary.
So, as a new page turns — and while people are still wishing each other “Happy New Year!” — this is a great time to look ahead.
And to amass the wisdom of the “06880” community. When we want to, we can be a very thoughtful, creative and insightful bunch.
Here’s today’s assignment: What is your vision of the ideal Westport?
Take any aspect of the town you wish. Zoning, architecture, demographics, education, recreation, transportation, culture — it’s all up for grabs.
Let us know what you think Westport should be — and how it can get there.
Important caveat: This is not a bitch session. It’s not about what hasn’t worked, or is not now working. It’s not about tearing down or mocking other people’s thoughts. It’s simply a chance to provide your input as to where you’d like to see our community be, in the months, years and decades ahead.
