JEFFERSON: Company nixes Cape George batch plant plans

CAPE GEORGE — Lakeside Industries of Port Angeles has decided not to pursue a permit to operate an asphalt batch plant at the Cape George quarry.

Lakeside owner George Peabody said the company is instead looking for land where the asphalt-making equipment can be located without a conditional use permit.

“I think it will be less intrusive for us to find other property,”‘ Peabody said.

The decision will not affect the company’s lawsuit against Jefferson County, which was recently heard by the Washington State Court of Appeals, Peabody said. A decision in that matter is not expected for two to three months.

Lakeside Industries appealed a summary judgment issued April 24, 2000, in Jefferson County Superior Court by visiting Clallam County Judge Ken Williams. In his ruling, Williams said the asphalt batch plant was not a “grandfathered” use and is subject to Jefferson County’s current land-use laws.

Williams ruled in favor of Jefferson County in deciding Lakeside Industries must seek a conditional use permit if it wants to operate an asphalt batch plant at the quarry. The company had argued the plant was a grandfathered use and that land-use laws existing in 1990 should apply.
