When 800 people show up for a presentation about the environmental impact statement (EIS) process, you know the community is interested.
That’s what happened March 20, 2012, during our public meeting about the Gateway Pacific Terminal project proposed for Cherry Point, reinforcing for us and our co-lead-agency partners that we need to keep you informed about where we are in the process and how you can participate.
We heard from a number of you recently when Whatcom County finalized its contract with CH2M Hill, the environmental consulting company the agencies selected to help us prepare the EIS.
Because many of you had the same or similar questions, we thought it might be helpful if we put them together with some answers.
We’ll post these on our website, and add to it with different topics as they come up.
