Guemes Ferry News
In 2013, Skagit County Public Works hired Elliott Bay Design Group to assemble a Ferry Replacement Plan for the M/V Guemes. The final report was issued on November 22, 2013. On March 26, 2014, Elliott Bay Design Group presented that report to attendees of the Guemes Island Ferry Operations Public Forum. A public comment period was open until April 11, 2014.
Skagit County Public Works would like to thank everyone who submitted input during the open comment period for the Ferry Replacement Plan. A lot of really great feedback was received and is now available for public review. Before Public Works issues a response to all of the questions and comments, there will be an open work session held with the Board of Skagit County Commissioners. The public is welcome to attend and listen to a presentation of the Ferry Replacement Plan that will be given by Elliott Bay Design Group. The work session will be held Tuesday, August 26, 2014, at 8:30 a.m. in the Commissioner’s Hearing Room, at 1800 Continental Place, Mount Vernon, WA 98274.
