We have a boundary!

Last evening we heard the news from both a port commissioner and a county commissioner that the property transfers are complete and Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park is entirely in city hands. Since the port land was the major source of contention between 1980 and now, and the final small parcel holding up the transfer belonged to the county, it would seem that the sources of information are exceedingly well-placed to provide facts.

We aren't done yet. There are all the issues ahead of language in the parks and comprehensive plans being updated to recognize this new reality and affirm governmental recognition of perpetual protections. But now park supporters can focus on a single entity - it's time for the city to finish what it started in 1980.

Meanwhile, there are some weathered bumper stickers around town that are becoming collectors' items. We still have a few left - just in case.
