Wetlands Public Hearing on South Port Proposal Tonight


November 2, 2012

The Wetlands and Dune Board will hold a public hearing 6 p.m. Friday on the proposed modification of a wetlands mitigation permit obtained by South Port Investors LLC in 2008.

The planned South Port yacht repair facility is adjacent to the Coast Guard station, and entails removal of a portion of wetlands. Government regulations require any removal of wetlands to be mitigated.

South Port previously received permission to mitigate the removal at Eyre Hall. Now, the firm is asking to change the mitigation site to town-owned property leased to South Port.

The proposed mitigation site has received tentative approval by the Army Corps of Engineers.
