The city of Hampton has submitted a proposal to rebuild Buckroe at the site of the old Pier 1 Restaurant. There is some controversy over it, so no one is sure yet.
The people of Grandview have every intention of rebuilding, though it will basically have to be done without the help of the city of Hampton. Another reason for the meeting on Saturday.
Also, if Hampton does build a fishing pier, the projected start date is February of 2005. Grandview wants to begin much sooner than that.
and is hamptons proposed date to start is 2005 that really means 2006 and it wouldn't be done til 2008.
sorry i wouldn't be able to attend the meeting and i don't fish over on that side of the water but i know how important a fishing pier is in hampton.
all the best on getting a new one
