Gig Harbor Fights Waterfront McMansions

The Tacoma News Tribune published a story about the fight by a small Puget Sound community called Gig Harbor against the construction of two 4,000-foot homes on the town's waterfront. The story details an ongoing transformation of the former fishing community into a tourism and heritage destination.
