Waterfront meeting subdued

Well the plan was presented and everyone pretty much admired it - except for those 2 buildings proposed to front Merrimac St.

And how crowded with "stuff" it seems to be ... it does seem to have a lot of stuff: Two play areas, a playground, an "interpretive plaza," a 200-seat performance area (!), a skating rink, a cafe/event venue, fountains ... and that's just on the easternmost part.

Oh, and an installation by the U.S. Coast Guard, which I think was the best part, really.

But I liked how it was presented (with lots of "this is just the beginning" talk) and you have to give the NRA folks an "A" for effort, although they don't seem to totally have their ducks in a row.

But who does?
