This is an for the week of October 16 through October 23, 2014 STAFF REPORT news@masoncoun com The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) are seeking public comments on a tentative proposal for restoring more than 5,000 acres of Puget Sound shoreline habitat. A 45-day comment period on the Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem Restoration Project (PSNERP) draft feasibility report and environmen- tal impact statement (FR/EIS) runs from Oct. 10 through Nov. 24. In ad- dition, the proposal and the process through which it was developed will be discussed at a public informa- - tion meeting from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5, in the council chambers of Burlington City Hall, 833 S. Spruce St. Theresa Mitchell, WDFW project manager, said PSNERP began in 2001 as a partnership between the Army Corps and WDFW to identify large-scale projects that could re- verse human-caused degradation of the Puget Sound shoreline and near- shore environment. The project also includes several tribal, state, federal and non-governmental organiza- tions. She said the project participants evaluated more than 500 potential restoration sites. The tentative pro- posal - one of three alternatives con- sidered in the report - identifies 11 sites for restoration of natural habi- tat features that support many com- mercially, recreationally and cultur- ally valuable species. The proposal identifies the follow- ing sites for habitat restoration: Beaconsfield Feeder Bluff in Normandy Park; Deepwater Slough south of Con- way; , , , . , 8+ hour course teaching basic defensive shooting skills. Prospective students must be 21 years of age and show proof of prior training or demonstrate skill in a pre-class qualification. See our website for more information.
