Last Chance to Testify for No-Wake Zone in Holgate Channel

URGENT: Public Hearing on No Wake Zone for Holgate Channel and Ross Island Lagoon, Monday, July 27th 6 pm, Portland Building 1120 SW 5th Avenue, 2nd Floor Auditorium

From Mike Houck, Director, Urban Greenspaces Institute:

Thank you for you support to date for creating a No-wake Zone in the Holgate Channel and Ross Island Lagoon. Several hundred people have written letters in support of this effort, and more than 200 people showed up to support this effort at a hearing back in May. We have sent a strong message to the Oregon Marine Board that there needs to be one location along the entire Lower Willamette River that is set aside to protect wildlife and provide a safe place of canoeists and kayakers to enjoy nature.

THE MARINE BOARD WILL BE MAKING A FINAL DECISION ON THE NO-Wake ZONE  PETITION ON MONDAY, JULY 27TH.

IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT WE HAVE A STRONG TURNOUT AT THIS HEARING AND THERE WILL BE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PUBLIC TESTIMONY.
