Recently the Island County Economic Development Council produced a report on the economic impact and value that NAS Whidbey Island brings to our local economy. It is a detailed and very well authored and sourced report on the economic value that the Naval Air Station brings to Island and Skagit County.

Obviously a lot of hard work went into this report and it should be valued reading for those interested in the economics and effect of having NAS Whidbey and the Naval Outlying Field in Coupeville remain in our community.

Many thanks to the ICEDC for the time and effort it took to produce this report.
