In 2015, I made a proposal to extend the West Beaver Hill Road to the Cape Arago Highway, including a turnoff to an ocean overlook at the 400-foot level located about 1 1/2 miles south of Cape Arago. The overlook would provide visitors with a more expansive view of the ocean as compared to the vista at Shore Acres State Park. I believe that the proposed placement of the drilling rigs would detract from the viewing experience of viewers.
In summary, I oppose the Trump administrations proposal for off-shore oil and gas drilling as outlined in The World of Jan. 13. The rigs may also interfere with the annual migration of whales along the coast, further degrading this annual viewing opportunity.
