In response to Jo who wrote:

So if Roberts, Peace, et al were to find funding for the vision for the water front are you saying that you’d support it? Is funding really the only reason you wouldn’t?

The key is that the port and its partners took 10 years to develop a plan that has 25 acres of parkland with hundreds of trees, a 700-car parking garage, a new cruise ship terminal and two new hotels. This is a very comprehensive plan that benefits our region. To have a grand design without a way to implement it does not trump what we have already done.
