Letter: Beverly should ditch waterfront deal

(Continued)

This ill-conceived idea to construct a large restaurant on dedicated conservation parkland should be terminated and the city should use its efforts to develop the parcel as a true park with appropriate amenities to allow all of the public to utilize the entire parcel for recreational purposes and to enjoy the scenic views of Beverly Harbor as required by the grant. The city should seek additional grants, as has been done in Salem and Newburyport, to fund the effort.
