At Tuesdays Port of Port Angeles Commission meeting, the commission awarded $65,000 to eight agencies for ten projects as part of their new Community Partner Program.
The Port Commission created the Community Partnership Program earlier this year to fulfill its goal of becoming a visible agent for economic progress in the Port District. To achieve this goal, the Community Partner Program offered matching funds of up to $65,000 in 2015 for use in trade promotion, tourism promotion, and economic development projects for small cities and communities in Clallam County.
The successful projects ranged from audio visual equipment to banners to trail-head infrastructure. The agencies set to receive funds are from Sequim, Port Angeles and Forks. They are:
• City of Sequim,
• Concerned Citizens of Forks
• Feiro Marine Life Center
• Forks Chamber of Commerce
• Forks Timber Museum
• North Olympic Discovery Marathon
• Peninsula Trails Coalition
• Port Angeles Downtown Association
