Anacortes terminal and rides to Saturday’s meeting

Except when I’m catching the inter-island ferry, I tend to be one of those commuters who sits in her car or takes a walk while waiting for a boat to and from the mainland. As a result, I rarely give much thought to the terminals found at each dock. This recent article posted on Crosscut discusses a stalled public-private partnership conceived to  replace the Anacortes terminal. Originally constructed in 1959, the building is showing its age. But like other proposals to address the problem, this plan isn’t getting much traction either.

Although the aging fleet must be top priority, related infrastructure needs are critical as well.

Rides to Saturday’s meeting (Nov. 5): Several people have offered rides and one person has asked for a ride to and from the meeting (see this post). If you can offer a ride or need one, please click on the link in this paragraph and add a comment to the general meeting announcement post.

If you can provide a ride: Provide your name, the boat you plan to take, and how many people you can take.

If you need a ride: Provide your name and the boat you’d like to take as well as how many need a ride.

On Tuesday we’ll finalize ride needs. Thanks!
