Waterfront center gets Opportunity Fund grant

Clallam commissioners vote unanimously

PORT ANGELES — Clallam County commissioners have approved a $589,473 grant for infrastructure improvements for the Port Angeles Waterfront Center.

The three commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to award the Opportunity Fund grant to the city of Port Angeles to connect the Field Arts and Events Hall and other Waterfront Center buildings to city sewer, water and electrical services.

“When I think about what this project potentially means for the spirit and health and well being of Port Angeles, I have been persuaded over and over again that this is an appropriate, and in fact really exciting, investment from the Opportunity Fund,” Commissioner Mark Ozias said after a public hearing on the expenditure.

The grant also will fund curb cutouts for buses and automobiles, provide access to the Olympic Discovery Trail, upgrade a transformer and allow for the installation of a lighted pedestrian crosswalk on West Front Street, officials said.

Construction of the Field Arts and Events Hall is well underway. The events hall is one of three buildings that will make up the waterfront campus.

Further information on the Port Angeles Waterfront Center grant will appear in a subsequent story in print and online.
