Port seeks input on Quilcene marina improvements

Posted

The Port of Port Townsend is working to formulate a plan to hear from the public on what they want to see happen to the Herb Beck Marina.

During a Jan. 13 workshop, Port officials met with staff to discuss how best to engage with the public as it navigates future plans for its Quilcene facility.

Suggestions from staff included ensuring that the Port engage with facility users and the public on the future of the Quilcene marina, as well as redoubling repair efforts to maintain the community asset going forward.

Between February and March Port staff intend to develop a questionnaire with input from Port commissioners which will serve as the script of questions for a forthcoming community conversation with the Quilcene community.

Following commissioner approval of the questionnaire, the Port would begin to administer the survey between April and May — which could include one-on-one conversations and phone calls with community members. Depending on pandemic phasing, outreach efforts could expand to public meetings or open houses for further discussion in June and July.

The Port hopes to have identified common themes from its outreach efforts in the Quilcene community by August and would be looking to implement these themes into the 2022 budgeting process.

Port commissioners unanimously gave the nod for staff to continue in the 2021 public engagement process for the Herb Beck Marina in Quilcene.
