City, Port and PUD obtain funding from County for Gateway Project

From the Port Townsend Leader:

“The cost of the project has been estimated at roughly $2 million. Roughly half of the funding will come from the grant via Jefferson County’s Public Infrastructure Fund Board.

Three entities — the city of Port Townsend, Jefferson County Public Utility District  No. 1, and the Port of Port Townsend — submitted a joint proposal to the Public Infrastructure Fund Board for grant funding for the project in early October.

According to the application for public infrastructure funds, the port, city, and PUD note the project will expand the boatyard by 5 percent, with the potential creation of 20 new maritime trades jobs within five years.”
