More river access is history of empty promises

Published 2/8/2008 (Opinion)
Although there hasn't been much said about it lately, you may remember The River Accord, the 10-year, $700 million program Mayor John Peyton launched on a sizzling summer day in 2006 with the goal of improving the health of the St. Johns River.

The accord included this statement: "Past studies have shown that while Jacksonville is truly a River City, there are inadequate opportunities for residents to enjoy the river and its tributaries."

Thus, the accord included another goal: improving access to the river.
