Coupeville’s public deck found lacking
I’m writing concerning the Front Street Grill on Penn Cove in Coupeville. One of the stipulations which allowed the restaurant to be built was the construction and identifying of a public view deck.
Currently most of the grill’s wall facing Penn Cove has large windows. The remaining area, which would be logical for benches, is filled with garbage bins, a recycling rack, floor mats on the rail and other restaurant uses.
Where is our public deck? I see countless tourists peering down the walkway, taking a few steps .... wondering if they are allowed out there.
The Front Street Grill has been operating for quite a while. It is the middle of summer and past time for the designated public deck to become a truly public view deck.
