As an improvement/expansion project for this revenue-generating industrial harbor in Seward, public support is generally strong. However, with many key stakeholders from Alaska and other states, extensive regulatory permitting requirements, and the mix of private and public user groups and interested parties, this project benefited from various local presentations, briefings, and public meetings drawing crowds of more than 100. The scope of the project has expanded from what was considered when public involvement began in 2011, and R&M continues to assist the City in shepherding the project forward with the input of key stakeholders.
