Don't let cruise visitors overrun the community
October 18, 2023
I cannot agree more with John Bania’s letter to the editor in the Oct. 11 Sentinel. I live in Juneau and have been fighting the impact of cruise ship tourism on my neighborhood for over 30 years.
Three years ago, we finally had a borough assembly that I thought might listen to residents impacted by the behemoth ships. But then COVID hit and tourism ground to a halt. This year they came back by the millions (1.7 million). Now people are finally talking about limits.
Don’t let it happen to Wrangell. The best months of the year will be spent fighting the crowds.
