PORT TOWNSEND — A sense of community and self-sustenance are the goals of a housing development being proposed in part by the family of former Mayor Kees Kolff and 11 other families.
The development on 7½ acres would be designed to suit 15-25 families, said Kolff’s wife, Helen, on Thursday.
The cottages on the land would be no more than 1,200 square feet, Kolff, who is still on the City Council, said.
He envisions an area with agricultural land and, quite simply, a place for children to play.
All in all, simplicity is key in the plan.
