When the Port of Port Townsend resumed control of Point Hudson — the property it had leased out for more than four decades — last April, there were some housekeeping issues to address.
Unoccupied plywood shacks next to the Sail Loft Building posed a fire danger.
Docks, kept above water by 50-year-old submarine net floats, were “shot.”
Potholes that looked ready to swallow cars whole had developed in the streets over the years.
Now, almost five months after taking over the property, the Port has put money — and a significant amount of elbow-grease — into cleaning up the 30-acre site that was formerly a U.S. Coast Guard recruit training base before development as a resort.
“The train is moving,” said Larry Crockett, executive director of the Port of Port Townsend.
“And it’s not going to stop.”
