Envision Skagit document available online

Envision Skagit Citizen Committee Vision Statement:

“We overwhelmingly desire to preserve diverse agriculture and local food production, access to outdoor recreation opportunities for all ages, and the innate value of healthy, functioning ecosystems. The quality, diversity, and productivity of our defining agricultural and ecological landscapes in Skagit County are globally significant and increasingly rare.

“To preserve the character of our defining landscapes and foster economically vibrant communities, we recommend that population growth be directed to cities as much as possible, that an effort be made to protect lands now that will maintain our agricultural heritage, conserve our ecosystems, and serve as connected open space into the future, and that all of us in Skagit County work collaboratively toward our common goals. We cannot continue to sprawl as we have and preserve what we most value. Our vision is to see Skagit County become an even better place to live as we grow.”

About Photographer 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.
