Re: Unresponsive to Concerns

The issue is not whether logging on Mental Health Trust lands
near Ketchikan is a good or a bad thing. The issue is whether
or not the Trust is willing to take local concerns into account
regarding that logging.
In response to Mayor Weinstein's concerns, there may be one way
to bring the Trust to the bargaining table. The Trust will likely
need local cooperation in order to get the logs from its land
to potential log transfer facilities. Some Bear Valley logs would
likely have to be transported over city streets. The Signal Mountain
logs would likely have to be taken to Borough owned land in Ward
Cove. Either way, local government would probably have some leverage
should it choose to use it.
