The League is not a land-use lobbyist but a protector and advocate of transparent, open meetings and the public’s right to know. We appreciate having a slot on the CMT and hope to see Committee actions become more accessible to the public.
Straight to the Point
Hello, thank you for writing the travel article about Barrow. The story provided an interesting view. However, the date of actual visit should be noted. The story referenced visiting Pepe’s, which burned down in late August (several months prior to publication).
Also, regarding the cab to Point Barrow — at best a cab could only make it as far as the summer cabins on the north end of town, not quite on the point. A nice story spin could include the “northernmost resort home.” Had the writer scheduled a tour via Top of the World Tours, they would have taken the individual to the actual point for viewing at the whale carcass disposal area.
