Monomoy Plan Deserves Attention
This week we devote a lot of ink to the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge Comprehensive Conservation Plan and Environmental Impact Statement. Since the plan was released last week a number of its elements and recommendations have caused quite a buzz in town. That's as it should be; this is a significant document that won't just impact terns, plovers and the birders who watch them, but potentially a good portion of the Chatham and Cape Cod community as well. It deserves a second front-page story and a more in-depth look at its contents.
