Proud of East Ferry improvements

Congratulations to the town of Jamestown and the Harbor Com­mission for a job well done. The recent improvements to East Ferry are the most significant change to our waterfront in years. Strength­ening the sea wall, replacing the sidewalk and installing the sod gives our waterfront a look that we can all be proud of. Having recently returned from Florida, where the state, counties, cities and towns continually invest and improve the public’s access to the water, it is very reassuring. to see Jamestown making that same kind of commitment. Witnessing the Town Council and the Harbor Commission working together to upgrade our most vital asset im­proves the quality of life for all residents.

It is apparent that this Town Council is seriously committed to improving access to water. It is sincerely hoped that they in coop­eration with the Harbor Commis­sion will continue this effort and improve the parking in the area and finally repair the old dilapi­dated concrete ferry slip, which is not only an eye sore but also a po­tential liability for the Town.
