Mr. Krevor said concerns ranging from marine mammals to commercial fishing and economic impacts were examined.

    Mr. Krevor said concerns ranging from marine mammals to commercial fishing and economic impacts were examined. He said that in the daytime, the widest portion of the meteorological tower would not be visible from shore. At night, he said, lighting markers at the top of the tower could be visible on a clear night.

    He also outlined the five potential options. The first, and preferred, option would be to develop the entire area, though high-value fishing grounds and sea duck habitats were excluded from the area after pubic comment.

    Mr Krevor must be an asshole.
