Port Angeles: Annexation outreach meeting tonight

PORT ANGELES — One of the most controversial elements of the proposed eastside annexation — Local Improvement Districts — will be discussed at a public forum tonight.

Opponents are concerned about paying for sidewalks, sewers and other public works projects if unincorporated residential and commercial areas of Clallam County, from the city’s eastern boundary to Morse Creek, are annexed into the city.

Tonight’s forum is from 7 to 9 in the Roosevelt Middle School Library, 106 Monroe Road.

It is the third of seven meetings called by City Manager Mike Quinn and other city officials to answer annexation questions.

Meeting themes

Each of the seven meetings has a theme about annexation and city services, with time for questions and answers. All of the meetings are in the Roosevelt Middle School library.

The next meeting is Nov. 8. Its theme is zoning, public nuisances and other land use regulations.

In February, City Council members will decide whether to proceed with annexation and finalize the boundaries.

For further information contact Glenn Cutler, director of city public works and utilities, 360-417-4800; e-mail, pubworks@ci.port-angeles.wa.us.

Although there are still details to attend to and minor adjustments to be made, the facility will be open daily from dawn until dusk.
