Ruston Way waterfront development

The Ruston Way waterfront will see limited development in the years to come. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the only major, public exception involves the parcel just southeast of Harbor Lights. In other words, the only decent “beach” along the entire stretch may be marked for death. With a mile of area to choose from, developers have set their sites on the best place for sunbathing, kayaking, beach combing, skipping rocks, walking dogs, etc. There is easy access to this beach from the sidewalk, complete with steps down, and even ample, free parking across the street. These jerks can drop a building somewhere else along this stretch. I say put your concrete and steel northwest of the restaurants, between Duke’s Chowder and Point Ruston. Anywhere but next to Harbor Lights..

  1. Sounds like you need to form a committee and make it some sort of state sanctioned beach park or something. You go, boy.

  2. The sad thing is that a committee might actually be necessary for this. Any two-bit moron with connections to the development of Ruston Way should know a couple things. First, the beaches are not user friendly, overall. Second, there is a ton of coastline here to utilize for development. Why pick the only decent stretch of beach for people to drop buildings? I respect all points of view. That being said, if you think new buildings next to Harbor Lights are a good idea, you are an idiot.

  3. Agreed. It seems like there is no place safe from large corporations and development anymore. With all of the coastline up for grabs, these people choose the only stretch of beach left in Ruston Way. Once they get dollar signs in their eyes you can forget about any logical decision making. Lets just hope that we as the community can do something to fight back or at least slow this process.
