LETTER: Looking forward to the new Newport Shores with fond memories of fun at the old place

To Ozaukee Press:     

Although it’s bittersweet, I am so excited about Port people investing in our beautiful city. Thanks, John Weinrich, for 27 years of business in our community and for your investment in the beautiful building planned for the Newport Shores development.   

 John’s support of local charities and his hard work for the love of this city will, I’m sure, continue. The new Newport Shores building will not only be huge in stature, but will be even larger in its impact on the improvement of our incredible lakefront.     

Bringing jobs to Port year round and a destination that people will flock to not only in summer but in the dead of winter is only a small part of what this will do. The ripple effect will continue and people will want to bring money to Port Washington to live, develop and improve our already stunning city.     

Doing nothing, like some people want Port to do, would not move our city forward.     

The new Newport Shores will be the gateway to our harbor. Ansay Development, which is such a huge part of our community, deserves great credit for its investment and its role in creating this development.      

With the new, we lose the old, I will miss the beautiful summer nights at the old boat on the Newport Shores patio with Buzz and Josh serving drinks. I’m sure we will develop new traditions that will be just as memorable. Let’s make the last season at NewPort Shores one to remember!
