Residents — many wearing “Save Bolivar” shirts — started lining up Saturday outside Crenshaw Elementary School more than an hour before a hearing about a proposed coastal barrier was set to begin.

You wrote: “The corps also is accepting written comments about the barrier by mail or email through Jan. 9.”

But then you neglect to provide the information for submitting comments. Odd to leave that out since The Daily News is urging citizens to comment. I think it should have been included.

Here’s what I found.

Public comments can be mailed to: USACE, Galveston District, Attn: Mrs. Jennifer Morgan, Environmental Compliance Branch, Regional Planning and Environmental Center, P.O. Box 1229, Galveston, TX 77553-1229 or emailed to See website:​ for additional information.

Vacation homeowners should not get a voice. They can leave the home to get destroyed while they are far from the coast and living safe and sound in their homesteaded property.
