And they have a great many beautiful, well-preserved houses there to chose from. As well as more than a few excellent restaurants, two movie theaters (and a drive-in in the summer), an active and walkable waterfront, a thriving downtown, and all sorts of cultural and artistic amenities.
A crowd at the Port Townsend Film Festival...
In other words, the situation their City Council finds themselves dealing with is one of abundance. As in, and abundance of people who want, in one way or another to spend time in Port Townsend, and an abundance of people who stand to make money off of that.
So, hey, Port Angeles City Council...I'm just wondering what issues you're dealing with? Anything similar? Really? Oh, I see. You've got an abundance of your own struggling citizens who are pissed off at you? An abundance of empty parking lots and storefronts? An abundance of drop outs and drug abusers? What's that? Oh, you've also got a double abundance of debt?
Uhm, well, you see, those things, though absolutely abundant, to be sure, aren't really the same. Not at all. Not really. No.
What a difference an hour makes. So the question could be framed as...Will Port Angeles ever acknowledge and adjust itself to that time difference?
