Those involved with the Hoosac River revitalization project fully recognize the need to raise the water level through re-channeling the river. Indeed, that effort is critical. No one wants to look at, or would be attracted to, a mere trickle of water. Yet, when considering the successes that other cities have had, including Providence, this idea is not fanciful. Imagine a river that courses through North Adams that not only is a beautiful water feature, but also allows for fishing, rafting, and recreation. No one has any illusions about how difficult this will be, but that's not reason enough not to try.
Fishing and rafting in a flood control chute--water level reduced???--if you are comparing Providence to North Adams you are an idiot----this is the fanciful nature of it-- gee Providence did it-- San antonio did it- why not North Adams???--BECAUSE NORTH ADAMS AND THE HOOSIC ARE NOT THE ABOVE

No one is. The goal would be to raise the water level in the City proper so that people feel like they're actually looking at a river. This would involve narrowing the flood chutes and increasing the water flow so that the level of the water rises to an appreciable level to create water features and to allow for light displays to use a higher water level in advantageous ways. Then, where the river is more fishable, then sportsmen would be able to use it in that manner.

And, do you actually believe that your negative comments are going to dissuade those who are involved in this project from seeking funding to realize their goals? Do honestly think that we do not realize how difficult it is to secure money from public and private parties for such a difficult project?

The view must be great from the cheap seats, Clark. But, this project could actually change the City in a good way. Sure, you may piss and moan about the expenditure of tax payer dollars, but is that any different from MCLA getting public money for its new "science center"? Is the science center going to result in creation of the next Einstein in the next 10 years? Is that the barometer of success?

There is something to be said for people taking pride in how their City looks and feels. The river project is all about that.

I'm not pissing and moaning about taxpayer dollars and I know full well that my critical comments will never change the minds of you moonbats--but you will never raise the water level of a trickle-in June July and August--I suppose anything that will be done to beautify the chutes beyond the existing concrete would be good to look at--but it sure won't be a tourist attraction and it will not bring businesses to the river bank--except maybe for the Trickle View Dollar Store

That sounds like the bs they gave to Bugsy Siegel, before he dev eloped Las Vegas.
I guess you've never heard of Seward's Folly, among others, throughout the development of this country.
You know what they say, "those that don't know history are damned to repeat it."

It has also been said that those who have no grasp on reality are moonbats----of course Las Vegas did tap into the gambling instincts of millions of Americans--build it and they did come----Alaska was a Folly when it was purchased---after the fact it gave us Gold --King Crabs- Oil and Sarah Palin----well 3 out of 4 ain't bad-----but this Hoosic thing is mindless----decrease the volume of the chutes---and you get flooding--for slope you have to cut back the bank--can't be done all along the chutes--so you have spots where the trickle is accessible--whoopie ding----the notion that this will attract business is absurd--business for what??? oh that's right a new eaterie on "River" St----The Trickle View Cafe--now there's a real tourist draw
