Port conversation

Published November 15, 2010 / by Steve Berentson

It was “intimate informal” Monday night at the city library when Port of Anacortes commissioners met with district residents responding to an invitation by the Chamber of Commerce. Chamber President Mark Bunzel (at podium) acted as moderator during the 90-minute session, which featured a conversational format. Commissioners, who fielded questions from those in attendance, expressed appreciation for the opportunity to discuss port activities in a less formal setting than their regularly scheduled business meetings. Topics ranged from tenant activities to the port’s comprehensive plan. Bunzel thanked all for coming, and then extended an invitation to a Tuesday night “Futures Project” session, 5 p.m. at City Hall.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
