Port Townsend: More than 200 consider future of city’s entrance, Glen Cove industrial area

Citizens weighed in on the future of Glen Cove on Monday night, and most said they liked light-industrial uses for the area just outside Port Townsend.

A public workshop hosted by the Port Townsend City Council drew more than 200 people to Blue Heron Middle School.

Citizens met in more than a dozen small groups, discussing what they liked and didn’t like about the county’s plans to rezone 49 acres bordering state Highway 20 to light-industrial designation to boost development.

Spokespeople for a large majority of small discussion groups expressed support for light-industrial uses.

They also expressed strongly that they wanted to keep the highway corridor leading to the city visually attractive and forested.

The groups also said they were against commercial uses — singling out so-called big box retailers — on the corridor leading into Port Townsend.
