Download agency letters addressing the Bremerton boardwalk

Construction of a new boardwalk from downtown Bremerton to Evergreen Park is supported by more than a few people, as evidenced by letters sent to the Army Corps of Engineers. But most of the letter writers don’t tackle the thorny environmental issues involved with the overwater structure and its significant impacts on fish habitat.

On the other hand, state and federal agencies and the environmental group People for Puget Sound have raised many more issues than I could cover in Sunday’s Kitsap Sun story.

I would like anybody interested to be able to read the agency letters I’ve seen, so I’m posting them here for you to download. Some agencies, such as the National Marine Fisheries Service and Washington Department of Ecology, are involved directly in permitting, so they have chosen not to comment at this time.

One thought on “Download agency letters addressing the Bremerton boardwalk

  1. Chris,

    Thank you for posting these. It is clear that it is not only the Suquamish Tribe that has serious concerns regarding this project.

    Misters Williams and Knuckey should have been be more open and honest regarding that fact. All they’ve managed to do at this point is increase skepticism and more mistrust.

    I now wonder just how objective and accurate the Alternatives Analysis can be????
