Charlestown secures $1.6M for community center

City leaders continue planning of Family Activity Center



James thinks otherwise.

He said the people of Charlestown will benefit more if the city invests in its sewer systems, sidewalks and other infrastructures.

“Infrastructure attracts business, not a water park,” James said, adding that people are interested in jobs, something he feels is not offered by the FAC.

He said he is passionate about the people and welfare of Charlestown, but feels its leaders are leaving the city unprepared for the expansion opportunities that will be presented in the foreseeable future.

“I come from the place, if you are going to build a community, you put the infrastructure there and the jobs and the people will come,” James said. “If you want to bring people to Charlestown, you need to offer jobs.”
