CIVIX / If you love the Country, speak up: Jan. 7 is the deadline for public comment on the Turtle Bay Resort (TBR) draft supplemental environmental impact statement (see []). Although TBR has pledged to accept all comments through Jan. 18, the state Office of Environmental Quality Control, in a letter to Keep the North Shore Country, warns, “Comments outside the statutory period (8th to the 18th), however, do not have the same legal standings.”

So be sure to submit something by Jan. 7–you can always supplement it by the 18th, advises Schuyler “Lucky” Cole of KTNSC. “Once the Final SEIS is submitted, the City will have 30 days in which to accept or reject the SEIS,” he adds.
