Topic: Planning for the Next 20 Years (2016-2036)
The City of Port Townsend is in the process of conducting a “periodic update” to its comprehensive plan and development regulations. The comprehensive plan is a 20-year planning document that sets the framework for the physical, social, and economic development of the City. In addition to updating to meet state mandated requirements, this is a great opportunity for us to check in with the public on key issues and potential policy responses. What are the most pressing issues facing our community? How can we address them? The input gathered from the Town Meeting will help form the work program for 2016 and beyond.

Vote for America’s Best Town
One of these 64 towns can be called the “Best Town Ever.” Crowning the winner will be up to you.
Picking the locations in our fifth annual Best Town Ever contest wasn’t easy. We looked for places with great access to trails and public lands, thriving restaurants and neighborhoods, and, of course, a good beer scene—all while excluding the winners and runners-up from the past three years to make room for hidden gems, underdogs, and towns on the rise. Plus, for the first time, we added a wild-card round, letting our Instagram followers nominate their favorite towns—Port Angeles, WA; New York, NY; Saugatuck, MI; and Roanoke, VA came out on top to snag the final spot in each section of our bracket.
Date:Thursday, June 11; 6-8 pm (Foundation meeting and potluck at 6; lecture and tour at 7)
Location: Chimacum Grange (not at Tri-Area this month)
