Vote YES on Article 3 brings an outstanding vision for Rockport’s future

For years I’ve watched a variety of ideas and visions for the RES site along Route 1. This property has drawn many diverse concepts but I have never seen a community vision as wonderful as the proposal for voting YES on Article 3 on June 13.

Over the years, the Town of Rockport has implemented many mixed and different committees to study the RES property. In fact, I’ve been on two of these committees. As well intentioned as these groups have been, nothing compares to the remarkable Article 3 proposal.

Voting YES will enable all of Rockport and its citizens to benefit from this Grand Vision. A Vision that provides no design and construction cost as well as any additional tax burden to Rockport citizens.

Opportunities like this come once in a lifetime. Vote YES on Article 3 brings a fantastic and outstanding vision for Rockport’s future.
