Feds Extend Comment Deadline For Monomoy Refuge Plan
by Alan Pollock

     CHATHAM Under growing pressure from local officials and the local legislative delegation in Boston and Washington, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today granted an extension to the public comment period for the draft Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge Comprehensive Conservation Plan. The public will now have until Oct. 10, 2014, to submit comments.

     Local officials are heralding the news as an important early victory in the campaign against certain provisions of the plan.  

     Last week, the board of selectmen voted to send a mailing urging citizens to attend a key federal hearing on June 17.  Meanwhile, the group Friends of Chatham and South Beach has launched an online petition opposing the expansion of the refuge boundaries and new limits on traditional activities on the refuge like shellfishing.
