Compromise LHD, anti-demolition ideas floated


At the same meeting, waterfront watcher Bill Harris raised a point that might be as important as parking concerns: environmental permits.

Municipal historians say that the 4.2 acres of NRA-controlled waterfront once served as a transfer station for coal products. Before that, it was the recipient of numerous genres of refuse.

Harris, a onetime opponent of commercial development on the waterfront, urged the NRA to get in touch with environmental officials so that the appropriate studies can be undertaken.
