Senate President Novelle E. Francis Jr. is inviting residents of St. John to attend a Committee of the Whole convened to consider the Coastal Zone Permit for Summer’s End LLC. The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 28, at the Cleone H. Creque Legislative Conference Room on St. John. Representatives of Summer’s End LLC, the V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources and local organizations have also been invited to attend.
The proposed project would allow for the construction of a 145-slip marina, a designated mooring field of up to 75 moorings, a pump out station and a fuel station at and seaward of Plot Nos. 10-17, 10-18, 10-19, 10-41 Rem. 13A, 13B and 13 Rem. Estate Carolina, St. John. The permit also includes 27.5 acres of submerged land.
The senate president is expecting a robust discussion on the project, which has polarized members of the St. John community. The hearing can be viewed on Legit TV (VIYA Channel 26) or via livestream at www.legvi.org. The hearing will also be broadcasted on 91.9 FM.
