More Work Being Done On Partridge Island

A new committee with representatives from Irish, Jewish, historical, and political groups in the city has agreed to develop a detailed report on the future of Partridge Island.

That report will come out in October, around the same time as the engineering study that's already been commissioned. Mayor Mel Norton tells CHSJ News it's been in the works for a long time, and the dedicated volunteers who have agreed to be part of the committee are an asset to the project's continued success.

Joshua Thompson has spent the past several years studying Partridge Island and he says he's thrilled to be on board, because it's vital for the younger generation to value our community's historical legacy.

Various ideas have included a green park with walking trails, a monument, and an interpretation center.
