Anyone who loves Hood Canal and loves the environment will fight this development. It will price local people out of town, add to the destruction of this precious fjord and adversely affect marine life. This is greed talking again over the long-term health of our forests, waterways, and salmon. Part-time residents will be honored over full-time residents and mostly the realtors will win most.

If the majority can see the benefit of this project why can't the minority? Is it that they might have a bit of competition and that scares them, or is it that they do not want the benefits of jobs and better schools and infrastructure.

I say bring it on, with all the hoops they will have to jump through to meet environmental specifications how can it hurt the Hood Canal as I see it it can only help.

Golf courses are well known to be big polluters, we have enough pollution and golf courses in this county as it is. Hood Canal is dying, we don't need to add this insult to the injury it is already experiencing. I agree with Oyster Worshipper, it will price local people out of town. This is way too much growth and way too fast. Black Point has water shortages NOW, where will this resort get the water they need for a huge golf course and all the condos and amenities? The aquifer is insufficient I think.

My family owns a lot in the Pleasant Tides community, which is accessed by Black Point Road. Every year the taxes keep going up, and now the water bills are doubling! Why? To pay for the new resort to tap into the water system. The water problems with the canal need a few years to re-generate itself, and a massive resort will make it worse. Goodbye shellfish! So the arguement is that it will create some jobs for the area. It will also create more traffic, people, noise, garbage and pollution.
