Client: Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA)
Case Study: Peak advised NMTA and its members on the draft Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) and related documents. We drafted preliminary comments that were submitted to DNR for consideration. The City of Bellingham also contracted with Peak to review the HCP for their harbor areas.
Impact: Our analysis and recommendations assisted marine-related businesses and advocacy groups in addressing significant policy changes impacting operations. Ultimately, this work led to a moderation in state policy.
Testimonial: “I am glad you hired Peak to help you with this work (DNR’s HCP update analysis). They’re good folks and they know DNR.” Gerry O’Keefe, WA Public Ports Association
