Cougar Bay Group, County Agrees

Item: Piling on: Cougar Bay group, county agreement will spare posts/Alecia Warren, Press

More Info: The Cougar Bay Osprey Protective Association, Inc. reached an agreement with Kootenai County on Tuesday that will allow the handful of bay residents to maintain the pilings, which they hail as crucial for wildlife habitats and keeping a little peace and quiet on the north end of Lake Coeur d'Alene. "This finally puts an end to this controversy that started two or three years ago," said Scott Reed, attorney for the nonprofit association. Under the agreement, the osprey association will volunteer time and resources to protect the pilings and booms in the bay's no-wake zone.

Question: Is this a good settlement? Or do you think all the pilings should have been removed from Cougar Bay?
