Who or what governmental agency is proposing this? If it's the Feds then it is more than likely a waste of my (and your) tax dollars, but, it will be interesting to see what it's all about.

You CANNOT BE SERIOUS! You are not talking about disturbing the sand dunes are you? You KNOW that even the once a year Kinetic Sculpture Race is enough to wreck the dunes forever! Oh, I expect the protestors to be out in full force threatening lawsuits to stop this outrage!

Yes, FEMA money would be involved. Rose: There will be plenty discussion on the environmental impact.

You do not understand, Richard. Why - even horses walking on the beach causes such environmental degradation that you should not be able to sleep at night. Oh, the horror! You cannot possibly be talking about bulldozing the sand into a BERM! The beach will never recover, The ecosystem will suffer for years to come. Someone will have to pay for this. I mean punitive damages. Who's the richest landholder in Fairhaven?

Let's first stop building in tsunami zones and liquefaction zones. Wait! Wouldn't that kill the Balloon Track Mall?

Rose: That would be Kurt Kramer. Maybe Arkley.

Samoa Fire District will be the main fire department for the "new" town of Samoa. Maybe Danco & DeVries are springing some money.

The "hill" should be pretty large if it is going to hold all the residents that will have to flee the tsunami.

This could cause absolute panic in the enviro camp - disturbing the sand dunes - I agree with Rose and laughed when I read her posts.

Richard, again I ask: Who or what governmental agency is proposing this? If it's the Feds then it is more than likely a waste of my (and your) tax dollars, but, it will be interesting to see what it's all about. Do you have an answer for me?

Yes Richard, do the homework any of us could do if we really wanted the answer!

I guess the FEMA part of one of your comments can't be read by the anonymous.

Boy, just because FEMA money is involved that does not tell us where the idea came from or what governmental agencies will be involved. Richard is the one who brought the subject up, so he should be willing to explain it further. If you're so damn smart, and good at research, why don't you tell us what's going on with this project?

I am not sure which other fed moneys beside FEMA would help pay for this proposed project. Ya'll come to the meeting and find out.
