Opinion

Having attended the launching of the "Clean, Green Zone" initiative at the library, it was encouraging to see so many government and citizen groups share a vision of our town beginning with a targeted area on Main Street.

With so much natural beauty in Port, the Clean Green project could make our town outstanding.

One area, seemingly left to storefronts, may be better served by Residents or the BID to take care of the tree walls. It would be beautiful to see each tree well weeded, new organic earth and uniformed flowers up and down Main Street.

Perhaps the most satisfying announcement by the BID was the acquisition of a watering truck; plastic flowers will be replaced with real flowers on the lampposts. This same truck could water plants as well.

Another area of interest to many and vital to our town would be a shuttle bus service, with limited stops to our various districts. This would eliminate the need for more parking lots and expensive tiered parking. In addition, families would save economically by eliminating train station cars and emissions would improve.

Let us begin our coordinated Clean and Green initiative with great anticipation and participation.
