Dredge Committee Members,

As you may know, the dredge project permitting process Is moving to the next stage which is a public hearing which will be held at the County courthouse on Wednesday April 1 at 1:40 pm in the Council chambers.

The hearing is held by the Hearing Examiner.  He will review the recommendations of County Planning and the written record, including letters from the public.  If you want to write a letter of support it can be sent to the Hearing Examiner 311 Grand Ave. Bellingham 98225.  The link below provides information on the hearing process.

We hope for a big turnout at the hearing.  We encourage you to attend the hearing and to send letters of support if you have not done so yet.  There is an opportunity to speak at the hearing but if you wish to speak we encourage you to coordinate your testimony with the SP Dredge Committee.  We want to avoid repetitive arguments.

As the permitting process comes to an end the dredge committee still needs the financial support of the community.  Please make your contribution to the dredge committee and share this with your friends and neighbors.  https://sandypointdredge.com/

Please share this information with your neighbors and thank you for your continued support.

Board of Directors,

Sandy Point Dredge Committee
