FCP reaction to Governor’s proposal

Although the Ferry Community Partnership (FCP) has not yet published notes from Saturday’s meeting in Port Townsend, an article in the Kitsap Sun makes it clear that members plan to move forward with the agenda originally proposed late in 2010. At that time the FCP cited three areas of focus: no service cuts, identification of a source of sustainable funding for the system, and increased community input.

Time and location made it impossible for representatives of the San Juan Islands to attend this meeting and this will probably also be the case for next Saturday’s meeting in Bremerton. The FCP is aware of this issue and hopes to schedule another meeting in Anacortes as residents of the San Juans did attend the meeting that was held there in December. In the meantime, we can stay current on what’s happening by subscribing to the FCP online group (send an email to 4fcp-subscribe@yahoogroups.com and put Subscribe in the subject heading), through our own Ferry Advisory Committee, and by subscribing to this blog.

The full text of the article is also available here.
