FINAL REPORT RELEASED: COCKREHAM ISLAND BUYOUT FEASIBILITY STUDY

The Final Report on the Cockreham Island Buyout Feasibility Study was presented to the Board of County Commissioners at a worksession on Tuesday, May 15, 2007. The Study initiated at the request of agricultural landowners who own the majority of the Island, incorporates traditional as well as ecosystem values into the overall cost/benefit ratio. The Final Report recommends a buyout be initiated based largely on a cost/benefit ratio that would be competitive for federal grants for such purposes. The Final Report may be downloaded from the County's website, www.skagitcounty.net.
A Public Meeting has been scheduled later this month for the Final Report to be presented to affected landowners and other interested parties as follows:

Wednesday, May 30, 2007
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Lyman Town Hall
8334 S. Main St. Lyman.
