To the Editor:
There was a time when the opinions of civic associations would have carried some weight at City Hall. That no longer seems the case. Last Saturday, Old Town Civic Association, Rosemont Civic Association, and Seminary Hills Civic Association all joined with Citizens for An Alternative Waterfront Plan (CCAWP) in asking the City Council to defer the vote and improve the waterfront plan. Council ignored their requests and voted 5-2 for a plan favored by a business group called Waterfront4All. No wonder Alexandrian’s are so dissatisfied with their elected officials.
