Port of Coupeville is asking the public for input as it updates its comprehensive scheme and strategic plan.

The port owns two historic public properties — the Coupeville Wharf and Greenbank Farm.

A community panel has already met to help provide input, and a public meeting is scheduled for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 1, in Barn A at the Greenbank Farm.

Port of Coupeville Executive Director Chris Michalopoulos said he’s hoping to draw more of the community into the process.

“… This is a vital part of our planning process, and gathering public input is key,” he said.

The port also created a website where members of the community can submit comments about what they’d like to see as the port’s set of priorities for the coming years.

Some areas port commissioners are seeking input on include open space/recreation, port operations, infrastructure development and support, real estate opportunities and industry/business.

“The public comment tool … is going to be great for people to comment and provide feedback that may or may not have attended the public meetings,” Michalopoulos said.
