We, the undersigned, request all future public meetings held by the Corps of Engineers for the Mobile Harbor GRR Study to deepen and widen the ship channel NOT be conducted in the “open house” style.  The “open house” format does not allow all participants to hear the same information provided by the Corps staff because of the multitude of small individual discussions that occur in such meetings.  The “open house” format also prevents the attendees from interacting with one another and the Corps staff in a group setting.  Group interaction is especially helpful to those members of the Public that are not as well informed as others and may not know what questions to ask of the Corps.  Further, as the Study advances, the concerned Public is interested in learning how the previously provided Public comments are being used to develop alternatives, evaluate environmental impacts, consider mitigation measures, etc.  Since Public Meetings are held to benefit both the Public and the Corps, we respectively request the Corps to implement a format for all future meetings that promotes the Public’s ability to interact with one another and the Corps staff as a group so all participants can hear and receive the same information.  Thank you!
