(PORT ANGELES)-- The city of Port Angeles is inching closer to a new waterfront park, to be built as part of the downtown waterfront improvement project.
Nathan West, the Director of Community and Economic Development, says the city is now advertising for bids on phase two of the improvement project. He says if the timetable holds, work could begin by July.
This week, the city council selected Vanir Construction Management Incorporated, to manage the phase two. That phase will consist of the West End Park, and cost about two and a half million dollars.
West says the city has received a series of grants to help cut into those costs. He says of the 2.4 million dollar cost, nearly one and a half million dollars will paid with non-city grants.
The phase two portion of the project will include two pocket beaches as part of the park, and be situated between Oak Street and the Valley Creek Estuary.
