Event Notice: Oppose bridge to Dockstader’s Island April 4, 2016

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

By Catherine Haug, March 31, 2016

The following is from Dave Hadden, of CANSC (Community Association for North Shore Conservation)

Flathead Lake needs you to show up at the Flathead County Commissioners’ meeting room this Monday, April 4 at 9:00 am.  The commissioners will be hearing an application for a “permit amendment” from the developer of the bridge on the north shore.  The developer will be adding:
  • Gargoyles
  • Lighting
  • Pennant flags
  • And cross bracing under the bridge
All of these additions will add to obstruction of navigable waters and further degrade the scenic qualities of the north shore.  
The commissioners need to see that people are concerned about this bridge.
