Editorial in Island Packet praises Beaufort citizens for smacking down River Place development
An April 26 editorial in the Island Packet newspaper praised the citizens of Beaufort for smacking down Beaufort’s city council, redevelopment commission and their proposed River Place project. The editorial styled River Place a “secret redevelopment project”.
“Beaufort residents are averse to actions taken in their name but without their input” the editorial said. “Some might ask where all of these opponents of redevelopment were before the city got so far along in this process. The answer: They were in the dark.”
The editorial concluded: “If you cover the people’s eyes, rest assured you will not shut their mouths.”
