An Open Letter to the Newport Council and the Lincoln County Commissioners

At the July 30th meeting of the Urban Renewal Agency, City Council member Dietmar Goebel asked Wayne Belmont, the County Counsel and chief booster for the project, if the county could redevelop the County Fairgrounds on their own, and still move ahead with this project even if the City of Newport was not willing to commit spending $3 million dollars in Urban Renewal funds on the project.

Mr Belmont replied, “Yes.”

This is very welcome news. Apparently, the Commissioners have identified alternative funding sources for their project, which is an endeavor that will never pay for itself. This now allows the City of Newport to reconsider alternative uses for these much-needed funds.

Therefore, on behalf of CommonSense-LincolnCounty, we ask the City of Newport’s Urban Renewal Agency to formally notify the County Commissioners that they are withdrawing from consideration the allocation of any Urban Renewal funds towards the Fairgrounds redevelopment project.

Thank you,

Gerry Barrett
