Wellers Bay's wicked sandbar has been off limits for many years now. Efforts to re-open it for public use are riddled with red tape. Here's the latest from the Friends of Wellers Bay: "The UXO meeting schedule for Dec 8 has been CANCELLED. We heard from Mauricio Martinez of UXO writing that they "need to postpone the proposed December 8th Wellers Bay Stakeholders Consultative Group’s meeting due to delays in completing the field work." He went on to say that "we need sufficient time to receive, review the reports and determine the next steps." A new meeting will be scheduled in the new year."
"Due to the election, the UXO meeting is rescheduled to May 25th, 2011 at 7pm at the Consecon Masonic Lodge."
"UXO will update the Group on the latest activities conducted at the Wellers Bay National Wildlife Area and to provide the results of DND’s assessment of UXO risk and the planned risk mitigation activities at the National Wildlife Area."
