The news is pretty good.  There’s plenty to be thankful for, but there are several large issues which could become increasingly problematic.  You have to take the good with the bad, and that’s what the state of affairs is.

The Marina is looking healthy and viable.  It is nearly ready for promotion and clients.  It could be a success.  We will see how it goes.  One would be hard pressed to criticize so much good work and effort that has been made to date.  We’ll keep our fingers crossed

The hospital remains under long term threat of closure, but the current situation is not all bad.  It may be time that the oil issue is finally put to rest after decades of remediation for the spill

There are a couple park improvements which are coming to pass this year which will be pleasing to citizens.  Many one to three day events are scheduled and they seem a perfect fit for the tourism Chestertown needs.  While there have been major commitments of renewal and construction from local powerhouse businesses such as La Motte and Dixon Valve, there is plenty of room for new employers and businesses here.  The movie theater is up and running.  Restaurants and bars are in the process of being constructed or opening shortly.  The Farmer’s Market has new guidelines meeting their needs.  The Sultana project has grown much larger and more viable.

All in all, 2018 was a great year for Chestertown and 2019 looks like some very good things will continue to bloom here.  That’s all good news!  Hopefully, the County Commissioners will find a way to give Chestertown and Rock Hall the tax differential payments these places truly need to survive and prosper.
