PORT ANGELES — City officials on Thursday will hold the second of seven meetings to answer annexation questions.
The meeting is scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Roosevelt Middle School Library, 106 Monroe Road.
Port Angeles officials are studying annexation of unincorporated residential and commercial areas of Clallam County from the city’s eastern boundary to Morse Creek.
The area includes several car dealers, Wal-Mart, Les Schwab and a new Safeway complex as well as the Gales Addition, Bayview and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods.
Residents opposing the annexation effort say they are worried about higher taxes, sewer assessments and commercial development of the area.
Last month, at the first of the seven planned meetings, City Manager Mike Quinn gave a presentation on the city’s goals for the proposed annexation.This entire report appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties.
