Finest fishing on Lake Erie, but Dunkirk doesn't try to take advantage to promote it. They eliminate launch parking for a mini-mall and scratch their heads about what to do with unused Lake front property. They get scammed by out of town con-artists

While I am glad that this long overdue conversation is finally really happening at the levels that really matter to make someting happen, I'm also afraid that these endeavors will fall into the hands of the same ol' usual suspects...I recently joined a committee trying to remedy these very issues but after a few meetings I realized that meetings will get us nowhere. What we really need is entrepeneurs with the ambition and capital to make things happen...and local governments that will incentivize them to do so...But how can that really happen when there are so many levels of government one would have to go through? While the conversation to consolidate is happening, they really need to get something rolling on this - as a sign to business and residents that this government is really trying to do something to cut their own costs and help the area prosper.

I have been coming here since a child...for the beaches of the lake. We spent every summer here from the day school let out until the day before it began in Sept in Van Buren. My husband enjoyed the same living here year round growing up at the Point.

Oh YES we have an asset that many do not have..and one that we could market in a much better, more profitable way.

I would love to see us do this in a responsible way. Where are those whose jobs it is to promote economic development. Get on with it.

According to this article, nearly twice as many people in the U.S. are involved in wildlife viewing/photography as in hunting/fishing.

Yet hunting and fishing are the only activities named for promotion. I suggest that opportunities for wildlife viewing would attract another segment of visitors and are worth being included in marketing Chautauqua County.
