Are the downtown docks the property of the cruise ship industry, and their security needs take precedence over the rights of local residents to walk on the docks, or, are the docks the property of local residents and our right to walk on the docks takes precedence over the right of a cruise ship to tie up at the dock? It all depends on how you look at it.
I recommend that the names of the Old Ferry Dock and the Alaska Steamship Dock be renamed "The Juneau Harbor Pedestrian Walkway" to more accurately reflect their primary purpose.
