Federal Agency Comments to Army Corps on Marina in Coral Bay

FEDERAL AGENCIES STRONGLY URGE ARMY CORPS TO DENY MARINA PERMIT

March 25, 2015 – Coral Bay, St John, US Virgin Islands – The Coral Bay Community Council and the Save Coral Bay grass roots movement have submitted over 1,000 pages of legal analysis, expert reports and environmental analysis to the US Army Corps of Engineers opposing the permit requested by the Summers End Group to construct a mega yacht marina in Coral Bay Harbor, St John, USVI. The submission included close to 14,000 public letters and a petition with over 5,000 signatures all opposed to the marina. Today, we are pleased to announce that we have received copies of the official comment letters sent by four federal agencies, and they have all identified extensive deficiencies in the application, with some agencies going as far as urging the Army Corps, in the strongest terms, to deny the permit requested by the Summers End Group.

Midnight, Atlantic Standard Time

In typical island fashion, it was hard to tell when the old year ended and the new one began.

New Year 2013

The party was at Skinny Legs in Coral Bay where the unadvertised festivities (New York City band, free champagne, and surf & turf) drew a lively and appreciative local crowd with revelers dressed in everything from typical-everyday-casual to we-just-came-from-dinner-at-Caneel-Bay-black-tie. As twelve o’clock drew near, the bartenders donned sparkly Happy New Year tiaras and began pouring the bubbly.  Top hats, leis, and noisemakers were passed around.   December 31st was slipping away but Work of Art was mid-song and the dance floor was jamming.  Would they stop for a traditional Times Square-style countdown?
