Port Angeles: Skills center ground-breaking set Friday

PORT ANGELES — The North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center and Business Incubator Facility will conduct a groundbreaking ceremony Friday at the future location of the complex.

The ceremony will begin at noon at Eighth and C streets.

The public event will be hosted by the Port Angeles School District in partnership with the Clallam County Economic Development Council.

The main campus will be built in next year and satellite campuses are planned for Sequim, Forks and Clallam Bay.

The center received a $3 million check from Gov. Gary Locke in June.

Center officials originally asked for $5.95 million and are still seeking $2.2 million in federal appropriations and $2 million in state funding.
