Langley Marina expansion to be discussed during two meetings today

Meetings explaining the benefits of expanding the Langley Marina and its impact on the South Whidbey economy will be held Monday, Sept. 8 at Langley City Hall.

Originally set for 1 p.m., organizers decided to hold two sessions so as many people as possible could attend.

The second meeting will be at 7 p.m.

Maureen Cooke, chairwoman of the advocacy committee for the harbor

project, said there will be a formal presentation and officials will

be available to answer questions on the upcoming levy proposal.

The Port of South Whidbey is pursuing an $8.2 million makeover of the

Langley marina and port commissioners have proposed a November ballot

measure for a 9-cent increase in the port's property tax levy. The levy would be assessed for 20 years.

Currently, the port collects 10.5 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.

If the measure passes in November, homeowners would see a roughly $32

per year increase for a home valued at $360,000.
