Guest Opinion: Glen Foerd's new dock on the Poquessing a 'fiasco'

1 0 0

Glen Foerd on the Delaware and its neighbors to the north at Salem Harbour lately have been having an uneasy relationship. It wasn’t always this way.

The two have been sharing the Poquessing Creek, that is, until Glen Foerd took control this summer and overbuilt a poorly conceived boat ramp smack dab in the middle of the channel they supposedly “share,” without so much as soliciting the input of their neighbors living across the way in Salem Harbour.

Nor did Glen Foerd officials take into account the ecology of the wildlife living there. Talk about being a bad neighbor. Not only that, the industrial-style design and sheer size of the structure negatively impacted the aesthetics of the Glen Foerd Italianate mansion and bucolic nature of the surrounding area and estate.

It was that much of an eyesore. In a word, it was unsightly, built too far out into the channel where it encroached on the integrity of the Salem Harbour community and environs.........
