Greenbank Farm transition group selected

The commissioners for the Port of Coupeville selected nine people to participate in a group that will develop a transition plan concerning the way the Greenbank Farm is managed.

Each of the three commissioners 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.

That 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.
