Spurred on by the national trend of gentrification of historical working waterfronts, the PTMTA has commissioned Martin Associates to document the value and importance of the marine trade industries in Jefferson County by means of an economic study.
Local Port Townsend station KPTZ presented an episode detailing the report’s release
“July 23rd, 2018, on the Compass radio news program, we hear about how the lifeblood of this community – its marine trades – are being threatened. We also learn how this affects everybody within the sound of my voice, whether you’re connected to the marine trades or not. And then we listen to experts explain what they intend to do about it, as presented to the community on July 12, 2018.”
