ARMY TO ACT ON 2 BOARDWALK PERMITS SEPARATELY

June 18, 2003 – The U.S. Army has agreed to a request from Lt. Gov. Vargrave Richards that it evaluate two permit applications separately for construction of the second phase of the Christiansted boardwalk, according to a release.
Edwin Muniz, chief of the Army's Antilles Regulatory Section, acceded to the request for separate evaluation of the proposals for completion of Phase II (a) and Phase II (b) of the walkway, Richards said in the release.
Richards said Muniz concurred with him "that the project has languished on the drawing board for 15 long years and that it is now time to move forward." Further, he said, Muniz also "agreed, by his quick and positive response, that it is an immediate economic stimulus priority that will assist in jump-starting the floundering economy on St. Croix."
According to Richards, the entire St. Croix community "will benefit greatly from the employment opportunities and from the revitalization of the surrounding area."
