Jefferson: County’s second urban growth area could happen next month

PORT HADLOCK — The Jefferson County Planning Commission recommended approval Wednesday night of a proposed 1,450-acre urban growth area in the Tri-Area.

Commissioners voted 6- 2 to approve the designation that could eventually pave the way for urban levels of service such as roads, sewers, water, police and fire in Port Hadlock, Irondale and part of Chimacum.

County commissioners will make the final decision on the designation next month.

If approved, the Tri-Area would become the only designated urban area outside Port Townsend.
