subject c Brown Betty: Breaking news – Dry Dock Parking
All other rumors aside, here is the latest news directly from County Executive, Pete Kremen. Mr.Kremen has verbal agreement from the LummiNation that the usual parking area at Gooseberry Point will be available free of charge, courtesy of Lummi Nation. He is expecting a formal letter from Lummi Nation confirming this hopefully by Monday. Public Works will issue a new parking area map confirming all this, and the parking areas will be the same as in previous years.
All park & shuttle ideas are probably cancelled.
While this is very good news, especially for commuters, you will remember that under “normal” conditions, dry dock parking at Gooseberry has been very tight and will be so this time – EVEN WITH THE EXPANDED PARKING AREA. Please be a good neighbor and do not leave cars over there unnecessarily. Do not leave a car for each member of your family if here is any other way. Car pooling and ride sharing are still a good ideas. Remember – if you park a car over there, you may be using the space needed by someone who has to work for a living, or who needs regular medicalservice or other vital reasons.
Remember that the parking lot is Lummi Nation property and we will be parking there as their guests and under their rules, whatever they may be.
Watch Brown Betty for formal confirmation and more details probably by Monday.
