COMMUNITY MEETING NOTICE
“We’re still listening, Quilcene.”

Please note: This informal meeting with Port staff will be held in-person at the Quilcene Community Center. Please remember to socially distance! Mask mandate is in effect.* There will be no meeting access via Zoom or phone.
Please join us at the Quilcene Community Center at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 16 to continue our conversation. The meeting is intended to be informal, conversational, and comfortable, and will provide an opportunity to share ideas about how best to respond to the needs and desires expressed by the community. Over the course of several months, we will be holding additional meetings as we work with you to develop recommendations for the Port Commission.
KEY PRINCIPLES TO GUIDE US AS WE CONTINUE THIS COLLABORATIVE EFFORT:
Broad Community Support: Our recommendations should be broadly supported and align with the wider community’s vision for the future.
Mission Alignment: Our efforts must be consistent with, and help to implement, the mission and purpose of the Port as a special purpose government under state law.
Triple-Bottom Line Decision-making: We should balance the economic, environmental, as well as social consequences of the actions we recommend to the Commission.
We look forward to your participation in this important conversation. In this initial meeting, we hope to discuss:
- development of a long-term vision for the facility;
- concrete actions we can take to improve the facility consistent with the community’s vision; and
- how to prioritize and fund potential action items.
