Farm transition group selected

Commissioners for the Port of Coupeville have selected nine people to develop a transition plan concerning the way Greenbank Farm is managed.

Each commissioner selected three people to participate in the committee.

Commissioner Benye Weber selected Janet Birchfield, Kyle Waterman and Val Hillers.

Commissioner Laura Blankenship selected Rick Abraham, Fran Einterz and Georgia Gardner.

Commissioner Marshall Bronson selected Robert Pelant, Jim Phay and Gordon McMillan.

The group will develop a recommendation on how best to manage the Greenbank Farm once the current arrangement with the Greenbank Farm Management Group expires in 2014.

Jim Patton, executive director for the Port of Coupeville, said he hopes the volunteer group will have a recommendation developed by the end of the year. To meet that goal, he said the group should start work by the end of June.
