Prevent the The USS Forrest Sherman from dockage in Havre de Grace sign now

Help protect the waterfront in Havre de Grace, MD by preventing The USS Forrest Sherman, a 418-foot-long destroyer dating to the Cold War era, from dock on the Susquehanna River. Not only will this boat change the face of the waterfront, but it will change currents, bay grasses, and wildlife in the immediate area. This is a HUGE change to the area. This is a 400+ foot naval destroyer. Read more here: http://www.examiner.com/a-1144192~Cold_War_era_destroyer_could_find_home_in_Havre_de_Grace.html

    This monstrosity of lead, pcb's, and asbestos belongs in a large industrial port city, not a small quaint riverside town. The City already has a reputation of spending money like a bunch of drunken sailors. We don't need to sink any tax payer funds into t

    This does not seem to fit into a water front view that consist of The Marta Lewis Skipjack, a Paddle Boat and all the sail boats seen throught the day.

    NO WAY DO WE NEED THIS VESSEL IN Havre de Grace. WHY would anyone in their right minds even THINK about such a proposterous idea! WAKE UP! If Baltimore won't take it, why should Havre de Grace? What a stupid idea!!!!

    HDG's waterfront is already being overshadowed by all the new homes and condos blocking the view. We don't need a huge ship taking away even more scenery. Baltimore said no, we should too. Thank you.

    A ship that size belongs in a large city.

    Havre de Grace could use it's waterfront for far better things than the placement of this old warship out there.

    Please don't let this be foisted on the Havre de Grace waterfront. There is certainly lots of waterfront at APG as they control most of the shoreline in Harford County.
