MOST OF US ARE FAMILIAR WITH “BUG LIGHT” PARK — THERE’S A PLAN TO TURN THIS PLACE AROUND CREATING A CONCERT VENUE BETWEEN THE LIBERTY SHIP MEMORIAL AND THE PORTLAND PIPELINE PIER .. SOME SAY IT’S THE PERFECT SPOT TO PLAY HOST TO 8-10 THOUSAND PEOPLE – THE EXPANSIVE AREA IN SOUTH PORTLAND KNOWN AS “BUG LIGHT PARK”.. IT COULD SOON BECOME THE BIGGEST CONCERT VENUE AROUND. CITY PLANNERS RELEASED THIS ARTISTS’ RENDERING SHOWING WHAT AN OUTDOOR, WATERFRONT AMPITHEATER MIGHT LOOK LIKE.. “10-thousand people? Here? Like near my house? Are they going to be on my lawn?” NOT ON HER LAWN – BUT YES, JUST DOWN THE ROAD IN THE SPRINGPOINT NEIGHBORHOOD OF SOUTH PORTLAND.

THE HOPE IS TO CREATE A VENUE THAT WILL RIVAL THE SUCESSFUL “WATERFRONT CONCERT SERIES” IN BANGOR WHICH IS DRAWING A-LIST ACTS.. “We could probably sell more pizza.” laughs KATIE POTOCKI OWNS 158 PICKET STREET CAFE…AND SAYS ANYTIME YOU BRING 8-10 THOUSAND PEOPLE INTO THE AREA – IT’S GOOD FOR BUSINESS. “It would be an incredible thing to see that kind of energy down here and more people actually knowing that we are here.” THE CONCERT VENUE IDEA – IS JUST THAT …AN IDEA – IN THE VERY EARLY STAGES..THE CITY LEASES PART OF THE PARK OWNED BY PORTLAND PIPELINE – THE COMPANY WOULD HAVE HAVE TO WRITE OFF ON THE IDEA..NOBODY WAS AVAILABLE FOR COMMENT TODAY. AND THEN THERE’S THE ISSUE OF PARKING AND TRAFFIC..BUT 5- THOUSAND PEOPLE TURNED OUT IN JULY FOR THE COLOR RUN – WITHOUT ANY MAJOR PROBLEMS- SAID THE CITY’S POLICE CHIEF. STILL…SOME RESIDENTS ARE TAKING A WAIT AND SEE ATTITUDE.
