Project impact not minimal

Impact will not be minimal

Re: ‘Marina Expansion Planned’ (PQB News, June 6)

The impact the proposed breakwater and dock extensions would have on the homeowners/residents near the proposed dock extensions is: decreased property values, constant noise from boats coming and going, loss of privacy, loss of their unobstructed views. This is not minimal impact.

The impact on the community of Beachcomber is: blocking all public access to the beach, increased traffic, constant movement of trucks carrying concrete boulders to the marina on our narrow winding roads putting cyclists, moms with baby carriages and walkers at risk, noise and dust from the dumping and moving of the boulders to build the breakwater. This is not minimal impact.

The impact on the environment is: the destruction of a reef and existing eelgrass bed. This is not minimal impact.
