The Trust's Board Chair, Executive Director, and one of Holland & Knight's attorneys meet in DC with the Deputy Chief of Staff for the Secretary of the Interior, the Director of USFWS and a Deputy Director to discuss the permit application and the preliminary site plan.
The government denies the permit application, but USFWS Director Dan Ashe offers two possible paths forward to achieving an equitable solution for the people of Harris Neck. One path is that of a land transfer, the other is to prove the uniqueness of everything that has happened in Harris Neck since the summer of 1942.
