Jan. 29, 1952 - Commission for seaway support: Support of the St. Lawrence seaway as a project of vital importance to the future development of Green Bay was unanimously voted by the city plan commission Monday. The commission also will recommend that the council adopt a resolution of support for the project and that citizens give it their support.

In discussion of the seaway, commission members pointed that it has been a "topic of conversation" for several decades and it has been generally agreed that Green Bay could not help but derive long-range benefits from its development.

For years, the official seal of the city has carried the words, "Gateway to the Great Waterway," to show that the city, historically, has potentialities as a port for ocean-going ships. Some smaller ocean vessels now come here by the St. Lawrence seaway would make it possible for approximately 92 percent of the ships now used in trans-oceanic travel to dock here.
