Re: Roads on Gravina

My mother and numerous others acquired boats and either rowed or learned enough about motors to travel to/from Gravina without ever asking the community as well as the rest of the state and nation to provide access to their remote properties.

You can currently get to Gravina on the airport ferry.

If you want a road to your property, get together with your like-minded neighbors, establish LIDs or service areas and tax yourselves to pay for it. Put YOUR money where YOUR mouths are. Stop trying to usurp public money that is needed and far more appropriately used where most people currently live and work; on the Ketchikan side of Tongass Narrows.
