March 14 — To the Editor:
For those who attended the city's recent presentation on the McIntyre project last Tuesday, March 5, and came away with unanswered questions about the many issues involved, you have another chance to ask those questions you were promised you could ask, but weren't allowed to at the end of that meeting.
RevistMcIntyre, a dedicated group of business owners and citizens of Portsmouth are holding a "Town Hall Meeting" on the McIntyre on Tuesday, March 19, at 6 p.m. at 3S ArtSpace, 319 Vaughan St. I urge everyone interested in the outcome of this critical project to attend. Presentations and speakers will address issues facing the current proposal, including: mass, density, lack of parking, post office, public park and public benefit and the selection process, among others. Speakers include Senator Martha Fuller Clark, attorney Paul McEachern, former assistant mayor Jim Splaine and Boston planner Jamie Simchik, who will address the idea of "charrettes" used by most cities in similar projects.
A public question and answer session will follow the presentations. Refreshments will be available. Hope to see you there.
