EYE ON JEFFERSON: Commissioners to hear of Rhody carnival site

The three Jefferson County commissioners will hear an update on the Port Townsend Rhododendron Festival carnival siting when they meet at 9 a.m. Monday.

The meeting will be in commissioners’ chambers at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend.

An executive session is planned for 11 a.m. to consider the minimum price at which real estate will be offered for sale or lease.

The Rhododendron Festival Association will tell of efforts to find a backup site for the carnival should weather and field conditions require that heavy trucks and carnival equipment not be allowed onto Memorial Field.

Commissioners will finalize a letter to the state Department of Commerce providing comments on a draft Washington State Guidebook on Military and Community Compatibility.

They will hear status updates on the drafting of a nuisance ordinance and on the Critical Areas Ordinance Periodic Review.

Commissioners will be briefed on the 2019 Annual Amendment Cycle for the Comprehensive Plan and Unified Development Code.

Items on the consent agenda include:

• Setting a hearing for 10:30 a.m. May 13 on a proposed ordinance to revise the Federal Emergency Management required update to county code.

• Lodging tax grants of $10,278 to the Jefferson County Farmers Market and $12,000 to Centrum.

• An agreement concerning snow and ice control on Clearwater Road with the state Department of Transportation.

The Strait of Juan de Fuca Ecosystem Recovery Network will conduct its spring quarterly meeting at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
