Palm Beach Post: Downtown Stuart waterfront should be for public, not for sale

From Sally Swartz, award-winning blogger at The Palm Beach Post: Waterfront land is precious in Florida, and Stuart is lucky to have such a beautiful stretch of it in public hands. Residents will want to keep that land open for everyone, not donate it to private interests looking to make money off public land.

I think most Stuart and Martin County residents — and tourists, too — only want to keep what they now enjoy: Pleasant green space along the St. Lucie River, where they can sit at picnic tables or in chairs brought from home to look at the river. Even with a Sunday green market, live music and downtown strollers on the riverwalk, enjoying the panoramic river views still seems the most popular pastime during the winter season. And it’s free.
