PORT ANGELES — The Port of Port Angeles board of commissioners will consider selling a 113-acre plot today.
The potential buyer of the land, known as the Critchfield property, will be revealed during today’s special meeting at 9 a.m. at port headquarters, 338 W. First St., said Port Executive Director Bob McChesney.
He declined to identify on Wednesday the potential buyer of the land, which is zoned heavy industrial.
Since the property — which is between William R. Fairchild International Airport, Lower Elwha Road and Edgewood Drive — is owned by the port, it doesn’t have an assessed valuation listed with the county.
But in 2004, when it was proposed to be sold to Port Angeles Hardwood LLC — a sale that didn’t go through — the sale price quoted was $400,000.
A group that included Dan Morrison, Don Zozosky and Randy Alderson recently proposed a sprint boat race course for the site, but none wanted to comment on Wednesday about today’s meeting.
Port Deputy Executive Director Dave Hagiwara said the offer was unsolicited.
A notice of today’s special meeting in Wednesday’s Peninsula Daily News was the first public notice that the port was considering selling the land.
