Port District 2 will buy Methodist church building
September 23, 2021
Commissioners of Port District 2 on Tuesday adopted a resolution to purchase the Skamokawa Methodist Church property situated adjacent to Skamokawa Vista Park.
The Methodist congregation has shrunk, and the group has agreed to sell the building to Port 2 for $164,000.
Plans for use are yet to be settled, but the port's 2022 budget says it may be leased to a long-term tenant.
In other business Tuesday, port commissioners reviewed a proposed budget for 2022. The commission will hold a public hearing on the budget at their October 19 meeting.
Also, Port Manager Jeff Smith reported that state Department of Natural Resources fire training crews had made significant improvements to the Vista Park shoreline trail, and the park host had made very attractive trail signs.
