I have just received another very firm verbal confirmation that parking will be available at the usual area, free of charge for dry dock. This confirmation came from Diana Bob, legal representative for the LIBC. I hope this provides assurance that Lummi Islanders will be able to utilize the usual areas for parking during this annual event.
Best wishes for a enjoyable holiday weekend.

It usually takes several days of long ferry lines for people to get their cars moved over to the mainland before drydock. The County will not be openfor business again until Tuesday–the day before drydock. By the time staff get into the office on Tuesday and figure out whether the Lummis will come through with the promised parking (for nearly 100 cars), there will be less than one day to let Lummi Islanders know where to put their cars–Gooseberry or Ferndale Park N Ride. It will be physically impossible to get cars moved to the correct location in less than one day.
