The Canaveral Port Authority says it is committed to informing the public and is interested in hearing their feedback on its controversial railway plan that calls for an earthen-dam causeway with rip-rap to extend more than a mile into the environmentally sensitive northern region of the Banana River Lagoon.
Now is the chance for residents (who pay taxes and vote) to voice their support or opposition for the plan. Concerned members of the public will have the opportunity to address the five port commissioners during a public meeting starting at 9 a.m., Wednesday, May 20th at the Maritime Center in Port Canaveral.
Under Port Authority guidelines, members of the public can address the commission for three minutes.
Unless they change their mind.
If you are interested in attending, it's recommended that you arrive early. The meeting room only seats 125 people.
