Town to hold EIS workshop Tuesday

Coupeville Town Council will hold a special workshop to discuss the town’s response to the Navy’s draft Environmental Impact Statement 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 that the council can pair down from there, said Town Planner Owen Dennison.

Workshops are open to the public, but public comment is generally not taken. No action can be taken during a workshop.

Comments for the Navy EIS are due by Friday, Feb. 24.
