Coupeville to hold workshop Tuesday for EIS comment

The Coupeville Town Council will hold a special workshop to discuss the town’s response to the Navy’s draft environmental impact statement at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31 in the Island County Commissioner’s Hearing Room.

Council members will have the comments that were prepared by the two consultants hired to review the document for the town. The idea is to try to come up with an initial list of concerns and then the council can pair it down from there, Town Planner Owen Dennison said.

The deadline for comments is Friday, Feb. 24.
