FINAL REPORT RELEASED: COCKREHAM ISLAND BUYOUT FEASIBILITY STUDY
Final Report on the Cockreham Island Buyout Feasibility Study was presented

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
