Developer still hopes to build multi-million dollar project

Peninsula News Network

Port Angeles, WA - 1/19/04 - A California developer says heís still determined to go forward with plans to redevelop the old Rayonier mill site, even though heís run into some problems with another project on the Peninsula.

Developer Jerry Ward created quite a stir in Port Angeles last summer, when he announced his interest in building a multi-million dollar project on the former mill property at the mouth of Ennis Creek.

Ward envisions a project anchored around upscale condominiums, featuring everything from a water park to an aquarium and commercial properties.

But since elaborating on his ideas back in July, and holding some initial meetings, there hasnít been much heard from Ward.

Ward has also been working to launch a similar development in the Ocean Shores area, a project that was launched before he sit his sights on Port Angeles. However, in recent weeks those plans have run into some rough going with disagreements between Ward and Ocean Shores officials on final permits and sale of property.

But Ward tells the Peninsula Daily News heís still confident the Ocean Shores project will come about, and he remains interested in the Port Angeles plans as well. Ward told the PDN that he intends to talk with Rayonier officials again this week.
