Clallam: Five business clusters now move ahead

PORT ANGELES — Five of Clallam netWork’s cluster groups now move forward to develop business plans to make their action plans a reality.

While moving toward this goal, the groups will conduct research and acquire data, which will be financed through a newly awarded $150,000 grant from the state Office of Trade and Economic Development.

The grant is a federal allocation to assist ground-fish dependent communities, said Brent Bahrenburg, project manager with the state agency.

Martha Chow, director of the agency, views Clallam netWorks as “a model program,” said Bahrenburg, one that the state will promote in other Washington regions.

“It turns economic development upside-down,” said Bahrenburg.
