Industrial Development

The Port of Port Townsend has expressed interest in the establishment by the County of a master planned location for urban industrial development adjacent to or within the Airport Essential Public Facility (EPF), pursuant to RCW 36.70A.367. The master planned location would become part of the County's industrial land bank (ILB) and is intended for the siting of major industrial developments (MIDs). no timetable has been established to date for consideration of this planning proposal. According to RCW 36.70A.367(8)(a), the authority of Jefferson County to engage in the process of including or excluding master planned locations from an urban ILB terminates on December 31, 2007.

Consideration by the County of an urban industrial master planned location designation would involve advisory participation of the Growth Management Steering Committee (GMSC), comprised of elected officials from local entities, including the County, City of Port Townsend, and Port.
