We’ve written a ton about the proposed marina out in Coral Bay. Well now it’s your time to be heard.
Today, March 5, is the last day to submit your letter to the Army Corps of Engineers whether you are for or against the proposed marina. As you may know, the Summer’s End Group is proposing a 145-slip marina that will cater to the magayacht community. This proposed marina includes placing permanent fixed marina structures on 1.7 acres within Coral Bay and 1,333 pilings. It is designed for 10,000 feet of boat, which is a 400% increase of what is currently in the harbor.
If you plan to write a letter, it should be sent by postal mail or by email to the addresses below. It should include the permit application number in the subject line.
Permit Application Number: SAJ-2004-12518 (SP-JMS)
Email Address: [email protected]
Postal Address: Mr. Johann M. Sasso, Antilles Permits Section, 400 Fernández Juncos Avenue, San Juan, Puerto Rico 00901-3299
If you are submitting via email, you may send a copy to the Save Coral Bay email address so it can keep track of total responses. That email address is: [email protected]
David Silverman, who is leading the Save Coral Bay movement, put together a few renderings showing the scale of the marina. They’re pretty neat, so please check them out.
