Letter: County commissioners responsible for safety of its residents


Navy jets often fly so low they risk crashing into homes, trees, and embankments causing dis aster to residents and pilots.

The Island County commissioners must hold a community forum to address dangers of Navy Growlers using Outlying Field Coupeville.

Where are the Accident Potential Zones (APZs Clear, 1, 2) now and proposed for the future?

What happens to property in a designated APZ — value, use, resale, taxes?

Who regulates safety compliance of these jets, routes, pilot training?

Why does the Navy use OLF Coupeville instead of a less populated arena?

What happens to the calls, emails sent to the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island comment line?

The county commissioners are responsible for the safety of its residents.
