$260,000 sought for Langley funicular
Plans to build some kind of system to bring people to and from the Langley marina are alive and well.
Langley’s planning director, Jeff Arango, said he has requested about $260,000 from a Rural Economic Community Development grant through the United States Department of Agriculture. The money would fund engineering and construction of a funicular, a tram-like transport, or an elevator from South Whidbey Harbor up to Cascade Avenue.
“We think we can do the project for about that amount,” Arango said.
Langley received more than $242,000 from a county grant for the project in 2012.
