Pete Kremen sent in this document with a wealth of detailed information about what Whatcom County has done regarding the ferry, its location at Gooseberry Pt. and Lummi Nation concerns about reservation road safety over many years. Basically, the County Executive took the Lummi Nation’s Chronology of Events and inserted detailed information and comments at appropriate points in the chronology.
This enhanced ‘ferry chronology’ from Mr. Kremen provides us all with a much more complete picture of what has happened re: the ferry and lease over the years. It also offers a factual response to earlier articles and comments both on the Ferry Forum and during numerous meetings and other venues about what “the County’ has or has not done with regard to concerns expressed by Lummi Nation and islanders regarding Gooseberry Point.
Thanks to our County Executive for taking the time to develop this improved chronology and share it with us.
PS My sincere apologies to all, and most especially to Pete, for not posting this document sooner. Pete emailed it on 3/11/2011 but somehow I missed seeing it in my inbox.
