The Port of South Whidbey has seen the light and is working successfully with the City of Langley on lighting proposals for the marina expansion project.
Last month, port representatives received no public support from the council for improved lighting, but the two entities have been working together since then, said Hal Seligson, mayor pro-tem, at Monday’s City Council meeting.
In a nutshell, the port wants taller lights to better serve tourist boats and mark the marina’s location for mariners. The city has been concerned that the port’s proposed lights are too tall and too bright.
“The staff and the port are in deep discussion on the matter of lighting,” Seligson told the council members. “There are a number of questions I’m confident will be solved in short order.”
