Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Boothbay Harbor Waterfront Preservation Board, a 501 (c) (3) public charity, I would like to thank all of you who have already sent notes and checks in support of our newly introduced project to create a public park, town dockage and additional working waterfront on the east side. All the potential we hoped people would see in our project is being expressed by each of you. We are committed to providing free, public access to the harbor for our citizens and visitors alike. Free public access means just that – free. You don’t have to eat in a restaurant or stay at a hotel to have a chance to enjoy the spectacular view of our harbor. You will be able to put down a blanket on the lawn or sit at a picnic table and take in the sights. Just as at the town landing on the west side, day sailors will be able to dock for short periods of time for free to enjoy all the benefits that the town of Boothbay Harbor has to offer.

We plan to close on Nov. 1, 2019 so as not to interfere with another season for Cap’n Fish’s Motel. Anyone wishing to contribute to our project please send to: Boothbay Harbor Waterfront Preservation, P.O. Box 55, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538. Please understand that no amount is too small. This park is for everyone.
