Port commission to talk Greenbank Farm future

Commissioners for the Port of Coupeville will hold a special meeting next week to continue discussions about the future of the Greenbank Farm and how it’s managed.

The meeting is 10 a.m., Wednesday, March 6 in Barn A at the Greenbank Farm, 765 Wonn Road.

Greenbank Farm Management Group’s lease with the Port of Coupeville expires March 31, 2014.

Port and farm leaders have worked since mid-2012 to develop a plan about how the publicly owned farm will be managed after the current contract expires.

A volunteer group submitted a report in January recommending that the current contract with the management group not be renewed and the port should look for an entity to manage the farm and then negotiate a new contract.

The Wednesday morning meeting will include a review of progress made so far, a discussion of management models and alternatives and a chance for public comment.
