Port Townsend: Big Fort Worden building project starts

PORT TOWNSEND — State legislators and parks officials broke ground Thursday for a $6 million multipurpose dining hall at Fort Worden State Park, the most expensive project on the state parks’ menu.

Jim Farmer, Fort Worden State Park manager, was joined by Cleve Pinnix, state parks director, Larry Fairleigh, assistant parks director, Rep. Lynn Kessler, D-Hoquiam, and Rep. Jim Buck, R-Joyce, in turning the first shovels of dirt for the project.

Completion date is scheduled in a year and a month.
