Our Working Waterfront ~ 9/08

Chris Bricker joins Port Commissioner Pam Petranek and Port of Port Townsend’s Executive Director Eron Berg for our monthly update on news and issues surrounding our vibrant Maritime Community.

This month, Pam and Eron discuss businesses in the Port, how their proprietors grew up in the Marine Trades, and how they value the environment and creative community in which they work. 

We talk about the Quilcene Port property, its uniqueness, the Linger Longer Advisory Committee and its long range efforts to plan for the future while keeping the Port property in public hands.  Good planning can provide good jobs for the community and access to the world.  Pam also talks about how a local idea has hatched a creative project in the making, for a proposed video walking tour of the Quilcene Port area.

Eron also gives us an update on Point Hudson and the Jetty, and the updating of the spending plan for the Port, an expedited Comp-Scheme Update,  which can be followed by a substantive update later on.
