After reading the last few articles from the Daily Pilot about Dennis Holland's boat project, I find myself very disappointed in your newspaper ("City to shipwright: When?", Jan. 4). The Daily Pilot has failed to provide a balanced and unbiased representation of how this project has adversely affected the surrounding neighborhood.
Your articles continue to present Mr. Holland's views in detail, but not the views of the neighbors. I suggest that you take some time to present how this boat has adversely affected property values, brought about an unsightly blight and been the cause for concern about the unknown toxins that this project may be exposing us and our children to.
As Councilman Hill pointed out, this project has been frustrating to all of us due to the length of time it has carried on. When Mr. Holland moved the boat into the neighborhood, he indicated that his intention was to be finished with the project in 12 to 18 months.
