Last week we mentioned how The Summer’s End Group was forced to resubmit its Army Corps application for the proposed marina in Coral Bay. Well today we’ve got some more good info for you, including information on their ridiculous new website and how we need to once again voice our opinions.
So The Summer’s End Group FINALLY created a website for the project, more than a year after initially introducing it. That seems legitimate, right? (Note the intense sarcasm…) Well we checked it out last night and it is complete nonsense.
It appears that Chaliese Summers purchased the domain on June 3, 2015. The verbiage used is ridiculous. There is one line that I particular loved and I know the majority of you, if not all of you, will share my sentiment.
“The environmentally sensitive marina is enthusiastically supported by local St. John families and businesses.”
Seriously??!! You have got to be kidding me. Here is the entire paragraph to read for yourselves:
How can that not make you laugh…
Now the second part of the website that I find hilarious is the actual domain – www.theyachtclubatsummersend.net. Notice that the website is a .net as opposed to the traditional .com. Any idea why this is? Well it’s because there are a ton of people who are smarter than the marina folks and they scooped up the marina’s possible domains last year. Go ahead and visit www.theyachtclubatsummersend.com and you will see that it routes directly to the Save Coral Bay GoFund Me page, which is just $163 shy of $100,000 as of this morning. Unbelievable!
Got some free time on your hands this morning … Look up www.summersendgroup.com, www.thesummersendgroup.com or even www.thestjohnmarina.com. You will notice that all route to the Save Coral Bay GoFund Me page. There are a ton others out there that do the same.
Now How You Can Help
We need you all to resubmit your letters. Or in the event you have yet to write a letter, please do so. Here is all of the information straight from Save Coral Bay:
The US Army Corps of Engineers has initiated a new PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD for the proposed Summers End Group marina in Coral Bay, St John. This new comment period will continue until AUGUST 24, 2015.
If you previously submitted a comment letter (in January/February 2015) we encourage you to resubmit that letter now. The new application does not include the 75 position public mooring field, so you may remove comments on this topic from your letter. You may submit your letter either by postal mail, or by email to the addresses below. Be sure to include the permit application number in the subject line.
Postal Address: Mr. José A. Cedeño-Maldonado, Antilles Permits Section, 400 Fernández Juncos Avenue, San Juan, Puerto Rico 00901-3299
If you are submitting via email, please send a copy to the Save Coral Bay email address ([email protected]) so we can maintain a record of responses. The Army Corps email system does have some limitations, so please remember to send a copy to [email protected] as further assurance that your comments will get to the Corps.
