On Tuesday, July 10 the Coast Guard will hold two public meetings on the status of proposed anchorages off the coast of Cape Charles. The first session runs from 1:00 to 3:00 pm, with the second session beginning at 6:00 pm. Both sessions will be in the Cape Charles Civic Center, located at 500 Tazewell Avenue. In the spring of 2016 a similar proposal was presented for public review and comment.
If you cannot make the meetings, please Comment Here Now. Public comments and any related material must be submitted by July 17. It is important that the USCG receives public input on this matter.
The Coast Guard hosted a public meeting at the Civic Center last August. Numerous comments were received during that process. From those comments, the Coast Guard reviewed and revised the original proposal and developed a new one, which is now under public review and comment. There are many important matters to consider as part of this anchorage proposal review. The Coast Guard has prepared a summary document webpage and includes a link to leave a public comment. You can view the document here.
Reminder: Public comments and any related material must be submitted by July 17. Please become familiar with the issues and participate in the public review and comment process.
