Background:

The Port of Port Angeles began construction of the John Wayne Marina nearly 38 years ago.  The marina has developed into a community asset used and appreciated by many. As a smaller marina without significant property surrounding it with supporting businesses generating additional revenue, the financial result has been that the Port has yet to recover the total original construction cost from the net cash flow over the past 38 years.

While the marina infrastructure (docks, pilings, breakwater, parking lots, buildings, etc.) has been well maintained and is in good shape today most of that infrastructure will need to be replaced in the next 15-20 years. Current replacement costs are estimated to be approximately $25 million as verified by an independent engineering study conducted by the City of Sequim.

The Port is concerned about its ability to fund those future expenditures. and began exploring alternative options tto ensure that the marina would continueto be a well-maintained community asset, well into the future. 

After gathering public input in 2018, the Port published a Request for Information (RFI) in March of 2019, to explore options for long term  government or non-profit ownership, or professional management for the Marina.  On December 10, 2019 three groups presented their ideas for consideration: the City of Sequim, Marsh Anderson LLC, and Safe Harbor.

The Port Commission is actively seeking community and stakeholder input, and anyone with an interest in the marina is encouraged to complete this questionnaire.
