  1. Great to see some details of the meeting – your report on the last meeting was very short in light of the budget approvals particularly the difficult Commission decision to increase the marina moorage rates by 5.25%.

    In 2013 Port staff and Commission discussions and decisions independent of the Harbor Square development proposal will affect important aspects of the Port’s waterfront assets in the coming decade. Detailed reporting of Commission actions will enhance public understanding of the issues and develop support for difficult decisions.

  2. It is refreshing to hear from someone with knowledge and Port experience who is concerned about the Edmonds Marina. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future with further comments.
