PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson County commissioners are expected to decide Monday on Fred Hill Materials Inc.’s request for a gravel-mining mineral overlay on its Shine property.
That and 18 other comprehensive plan amendments will be addressed at a 2 p.m. commissioners’ meeting in the County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St.
Final approval of comprehensive plan changes will take place at a 1:30 p.m. meeting Friday at the courthouse.
The Fred Hill decision is the culmination of months of discussion and heated debate.
The mineral overlay is the first step in the company’s plan to build a four-mile conveyor and 1,100-foot gravel-loading pier near Thorndyke Bay.
Fred Hill unveiled the “pit to pier” plan in April.
