Hearings examiner OKs resort project at Ludlow Cove

PORT LUDLOW — A Jefferson County hearing examiner on Friday approved a 120-unit timeshare multifamily residential project at Ludlow Cove.

The hearing examiner’s approval completes a public hearing process for the $23 million development proposed by Redmond-based Trendwest Resorts on a former 15-acre log dump.

“Now that they have that approval, they can apply for building permits and begin construction,” said Al Scalf, Jefferson County director of community development.

The project will include six multifamily time-share residential buildings, one reception and recreation building and a private road system.

Also included are recreational facilities such as a private swimming pool, barbecues, spa and public and private trails.

“The hearing examiner sifted through all the definitional questions, because there was a lot of dispute about multifamily and single family terminology,” Scalf said.

“I hope people see it as independent and legal process.”

Hoping to close soon

Having the hearing examiner’s blessing, Trendwest hopes to soon close with Port Ludlow Associates, owner of a 15-acre site known as Ludlow Cove Division II.

“They will apply for the building permits as soon as they can after they close,” said Greg McCarry, Port Ludlow Associates LLC president and chief executive officer.

“We have to wait 14 days to make sure that nobody appeals the decision and, assuming nobody appeals it, we will be closing in October.”
