CLALLAM: County planning Dungeness boat launch park upgrade

DUNGENESS — Clallam County officials received a vote of confidence from the public Thursday night for accepting responsibility of the old Dungeness Boat Launch.

Considered a long-time eyesore and nuisance to residents in the Dungeness area, the site is being turned over to the Clallam County Parks Department by the Port of Port Angeles.

“The transfer of ownership will happen in the first week of May,”‘ Clallam County Parks Director Craig Jacobs said.

Much of the public input at Thursday’s meeting focused on what to name the proposed park than on actual design or use.

Port of Port Angeles commissioners are expected to approve the transfer during their meeting Monday. Clallam County commissioners will address the transfer April 17.
