Opinion: Can Juneau tolerate this much cruise traffic every summer?

I want to bring to light some facts for your reading public.

April 17, 2023, the first cruise ship of the season arrives at 1:30 p.m.

October 25, 2023, will be the last ship of the season.

A total of 704 ships will dock this season which will bring 1.6 million cruise ship passengers.

According to the city manager, who told Assembly members at the last Committee of the Whole on April 3, 2023, there will be 3,000 more passengers per day this season.

Can we as a community sustain this type of invasion every summer? If you have concerns contact your Assembly: boroughassembly@juneau.org
